Hello,
After the build of our product is done, I encrypt the class files in my JAR files of the p2 repository and I also sign them. Obviously after such modifications the information about the size and the md5 in the artifacts.xml is no longer accurate.

The format of the artifacts.xml is pretty much self explanatory but there are a few cases where I am lost.

For example sometime the artifact.size is either 0 or greater than the download.size. Why? How is the artifact.size value calculated?

Where can I find documentation on this?

Thank you all for your help!

Daniel

The artifact size can be bigger than the download size if the artifact is zipped or pack'ed200. For example, the eclipse.exe is zipped and the artifact.size would be bigger than download.size.

>How is the artifact.size value calculated?
This is usually calculated from the size of the file / files that is being put in the archive

Don't be to bothered by this attribute though since it is only used to provide estimates to the user in one of the install dialog.

So does the property "artifact.size" is not considered in any of the operations of the eclipse tycho plugin and in p2 repo-generation?.
