Defining a target platform from a P2 repository [message #890319] Thu, 21 June 2012 22:29 Go to next message

I have a P2 repository containing a collection of bundles. I would like to create a target platform based on this repository. However, when I try to create a Software Site using the Target Platform Wizard the repository appears empty. The wizard does accept the repository URL as being valid, but is does not show any content. Is there a way for me to create a target platform from a plain old P2 repository?

Thanks,
Cameron.

It seems as though Tycho can see this p2 repository without problems. However, Eclipse expects a Software Site to be a full fledged update site. That is, the repository must include a stock p2 repository plus features and categories. Are there any plans to allow a Target Platform to be based on a stock p2 repository?

I think the bug you are looking for is:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=305873

PDE is reusing the somewhat well supported UI components from p2. As p2 does not provide options in the UI to view non-root/feature isntallable units, PDE target platforms do not.

This shouldn't be too difficult to solve, as the target platform just needs a list of IUs in the end. However, there isn't enough committer time to work on it.
