Hi

I was trying to use the technique shown here
https://nirmalsasidharan.wordpress.com/2010/10/09/provisioning-your-target-platform-as-local-p2-site/
to create a site.p2 (with Buckminster of course) from a target
definition file.

Basically the target definition is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<?pde version="3.8"?>

<target name="juno" sequenceNumber="1">
<locations>
<location includeAllPlatforms="true" includeConfigurePhase="true"
includeMode="slicer" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="org.eclipse.equinox.executable.feature.group"
version="3.6.0.v20120522-1813-7P7OG2BFLWUl7UmbVUO9iCm"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.rcp.sdk.id" version="4.2.1.M20120914-1800"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.emf.ecoretools.sdk.feature.group"
version="1.1.0.201205150811"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.emf.sdk.feature.group"
version="2.8.1.v20120917-0436"/>
<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/releases/juno"/>
</location>
</locations>
</target>

and then I create a target.feature project initialized with all the
plugins available in the target.

However, when I run site.p2 on this target.feature project it soon
complains about

No component named org.apache.ant:osgi.bundle/[1.7.0,2.0.0) is known to
Buckminster

which actually is not in the target platform (and probably needed by
some of the bundles in the target platform?)

so I was wondering: is there a way to create a p2 site from a target
definition with Buckminster?

thanks in advance
Lorenzo

The simplest way is probably to let Buckminster create the target
platform using a normal resolve/materialize based on the target feature.
That way, the TP will contain everything that is needed and you won't
even need the target platform definition.

If you for some reason have to use the target definition, then
Buckminster must be able to find the missing pieces somewhere and
complement the TP. You can achieve this by adding an empty directory
container to the TP and then run a resolve/materialize on the target
feature. Buckminster will then use what's already in the TP and add
what's missing to the added container.

Do you mean to have a TP defined through a cspec, cquery and rmap
instead of defining a .target file?

or something else?

Thanks!
I have a small problem when I try to build the p2 with Jenkins (I don't
have these problems when building in the IDE): although the platform is
resolved correctly with

resolve 'bucky.example.rcpemf.target/target-platform.cquery'

I get these errors when I try to resolve the target.site feature:

ERROR [0002] : No suitable provider for component
org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.ppc64:osgi.bundle was found in
resourceMap
file:/usr/share/tomcat6/.jenkins/workspace/Buckminster-Target-p2/bucky.example.rcpemf.target/project.rmap

....

where project.rmap is simply

<rm:rmap xmlns:bc="http://www.eclipse.org/buckminster/Common-1.0"

<bc:propertyRef key="projects.location"/>
<bc:propertyRef key="buckminster.component"/>
</rm:uri>
</rm:provider>
</rm:searchPath>
</rm:rmap>

the problems are due to the equinox.launcher fragments (I think they are
fragments)...

these fragments are included in the target.site/feature.xml

they are in the target platform, so why can't they be resolved?
I probably remove these fragments from the feature.xml, but I was
wondering why they cannot be resolved...

thanks in advance
Lorenzo

Not sure why this happens. Do you create the original TP from Juno or
from the Eclipse platfrom repository? I ask because IIRC some of the
launcher fragments are not present in Juno.

Hi Thomas

I'm using

http://download.eclipse.org/releases/juno

(see
https://github.com/LorenzoBettini/Target_to_p2_with_Buckminster/blob/master/bucky.example.rcpemf.target/target-platform.rmap)
however, the strange thing is that in the target platform generated by
the jenkins job the fragments are there, e.g.,

ls
..buckminster/tp/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20120522-1813/META-INF/

eclipse.inf ECLIPSE_.RSA ECLIPSE_.SF MANIFEST.MF

but they cannot be resolved when performing site.p2 on the feature.xml...

most of all, I'm experiencing another critical problem:

I was using the cquery, rmap mechanism for defining the target platform
because, from what I understand, it allows me to have a target for
multiple environments, and to have automatically all the required
software installed (which is something that with a .target file
definition cannot co-exist).

In the IDE this works! But in Jenkins the target platform resolution
with the .cquery does not contain required software!

For instance, emf.sdk seems to require (among the others) org.apache.ant
and org.eclipse.jdt.annotation (there are only few of them). In the IDE
when I run the materialization these additional plugins are
materialized... in Jenkins they are not :(

In the IDE, I created an empty target platform manually that contains
one single and empty directory. Set this target platform active.
A subsequent resolution/materialization will use that platform, in order
to avoid the fact that "An automatically created target platform is
based on the configuration of the currently running Eclipse instance."

So now I'm kind of lost... headless target resolution behaves differently?

In Jenkins I'm performing target platform resolution as follows

resolve 'bucky.example.rcpemf.target/target-platform.cquery'

is that correct?

thanks in advance
Lorenzo

FWIW -- I run into a similar issue when building off of Juno. I believe
the missing launcher fragments (for some odd architectures like ppc) can
be found in http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.2. These
problems go away when I add that to my rmap file after Juno.

Thanks Peter, could you please share the rmap?

However, my problem might not be related to this, since in the IDE it
works, and, as I said, that fragments seem to be in the generated target
platform...

I am a newbie, so I might say something very wrong here, but do you have the famous delta pack in your materialized target?
Because it seems it cannot find org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.ppc64:osgi.bundle (among others I guess),
that is part of the linux equinox launcher. Is your IDE a linux ide as well?

Hi Andrea

don't worry: I consider myself a bucky newbie as well :)

the delta pack is not needed anymore from what I understand, as long as
you have a target platform with launchers for all environments...

if you see my previous post: in the IDE it all works fine since the
target platform materialization materializes all the launchers...

in Jenkins: it is exactly as in the IDE: the target platform
materialization materializes all the launchers, but then, when resolving
the feature.xml, which includes all the fragments for launchers, it is
not able to find the fragment bundles, even though they are in the
target platform... that's why it is strange...

in Jenkins it cannot find ANY launcher fragment... even though they're
all in the materialized target platform...

cheers

Do you by any chance have some setting for target.os, target.ws, and
target.arch in your IDE preferences? Buckminster will look at
"Preferences" -> "Run/Debug" -> "String Substitution".

Are you running Buckminster twice? Once to materialize the target
platform and then again to build using that platform? Or is it all in
one go? I.e. are you running using a Buckminster script file or are you
invoking Buckminster several times from Jenkins?

Hi

I think I found my main (stupid) mistake in headless (Jenkins)
build scenario:

I was materializing (through a cquery) the target platform (which is in
a separate project), and then I was performing site.p2 on the
target.site feature (which is another project). The target.site feature
was correctly bound to the workspace (through the rmap) but it had not
been actually resolved/materialized (in the IDE I didn't need this step
of course) :)

if I materialize also the target.site feature (with another cquery)
everything works :) (modulo materializing and performing into two
Jenkins build step, otherwise you get the problem described here
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/767528/ for a particular
conflicting bundle).

I've updated
https://github.com/LorenzoBettini/Target_to_p2_with_Buckminster where I
also have another feature (target.mirror.site) where besides all the
bundles I include also the features of the target platform, so that I
end up with a site.p2 with all the IU of the target platform.

Stay tuned for a blog post where I'll try to describe all of this.

Bucky rocks! :)

cheers
Lorenzo

Nicely done!

But, a newbie question:

If my feature (plugin) has dependencies, these dependencies are found but they have dependencies themselves.
Where are those taken from? The rmap? The TP? Do I have to materialize them in order to build the first plugin?

My guess would be I don't, but I keep having errors about CSpec missing even if the plugin is actually in the right place and I am getting confused Smile

Are you using the IDE or headlessly?

From what I know, you must materialize the TP and then you have to
materialize the main plugin (usually this is the main feature for your
project) so that all its dependencies are also materialized, using the
materialize TP and possibly by using the rmap (if it needs further
dependencies).

see also this brand new post :)

Headless, and yes, after the "matching" phase, it tries to download the dependencies before materializing the plugin (just one in my case).
I am having a problem though with a p2 repository, see other post.
Good job with your article!

Another quick question, where is the headless buckminster materializing the tp?

Because in the log I see:
Processing changes in target platform locations...
INFO:  Resetting target platform Buckminster Default TP
Done processing changes in target platform locations
Project com.test.ui now has dynamic dependencies to com.test.ui
INFO:  Import complete.
Doing full workspace refresh
Waiting for jobs to end


But I can't, for example run:
buckminster perform com.test.ui#whatever


Receiving:
No component named com.test.ui is known to Buckminster


Why???

Buckminster will materialize into the currently active TP. Unless you
specify what TP that will be, it will be a copy of the Runtime TP with
an additional folder that resides under the .buckminster project.

I'd recommend that you do the following to control the TP in you IDE.

1. Create a general project named TP.
2. Create a new PDE target platform (under pde preferences) named TP
where you add one location of type Directory. This directory should be
${workspace_loc:TP} (i.e. the project you just created).
3. Ensure that this new target platform is active.

Now run your resolve/materialize. Buckminster will populate the new TP.

From the command line you can use:

addtargetplatform -N TP -A <path to a directory>

to add an active target platform.

Thanks for answering,

the fact is that everything is working under the IDE. I have problems with the headless materialization. Basically I can't see any .buckminster folder, anywhere...

Probably, doing
addtargetplatform -N TP -A <path to a directory>
will generate the folder that the headless buckminster can fill...I am about to try.

Ok, it worked, it created a sub-folder that, on materializing, has been filled by all the dependencies...not the actual plugin though.
I'd better check the mspec again (I am materializing the cquery....is the mspec considered here?).

Ok, sorry for bombarding, but I found out that my source code is somehow materialized into C:\Users\*myuser*\workspace but the jar plugin is not actually generated. Can I change the workspace location or, better, disable the source materialization (I will just need to build it using a site.p2 action) ?

Ok, I am slowly moving forward. Now, even if the workspace is actually filled up with unwanted source code, I can still perform the action site.p2.

I now receive the error:

c:\buckminster>buckminster -L DEBUG perform com.test.custom#site.p2

The project was not built since its build path is incomplete. Cannot find the cl
ass file for org.eclipse.swt.events.HelpListener. Fix the build path then try bu
ilding this project


I can distinctly see that there is no org.eclipse.swt.win32.* in my TP.

Aren't all the needed plugin supposed to be there?

I think I am missing something then...

To complete the process...forget about what I wrote before...I was just missing the correct path for my external and custom target platform.
A little, new, problem I get now is:
Access restriction: The type Display is not accessible due to restriction on req
uired library C:\p2_biomet\tc_platform\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86_6
4_3.5.0.v3550b.jar


Just using the headless buckminster, it works fine if I invoke the action withing the IDE.
