Hello,

I am evaluating p2 provisiong framework to use in a non-RCP based application. I did some research on how to use p2 for updates. But most of the examples revolve around RCP apps.

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Adding_Self-Update_to_an_RCP_Application

We have a standalone OSGI based application (no UI) with bunch of bundles. Some of the bundles change frequently and needs to be updated automatically.

We would like to design a solution where the updated bundles are hosted on a webserver (We would like to use p2 update site method) and the OSGI application automatically picks the changes from the update site whenever a new version is available (Intead of having a user clicking on update link which is common for RCp apps)

I would like to know if my design I am aiming is possible at all with p2. Some pointers on this regards will be appreciated.

Vijay

This is hardly a topic for newcomers.

I suggest you use the Equinox forum:
