When mirroring p2 repo can you specify multiple platformFilter arguments? [message #1004278] Tue, 22 January 2013 22:51 Go to next message

When I mirror a project (like eclipse platform) I want to slice it to have a subset of the available operating systems. In slicingOptions there is a platformFilter parameter where I can provide a triplet (os,ws,arch) to include just one platform, but is there a way to specify more than one? I know that platformFilter=true will bring in all (and is the default), but what if I want to include 5 platforms only?

In other places I've seen comma separates lists but they have the form "os.ws.arch,os.ws.arch,...". Here we already have commas being used. Is it valid to say "win32,win32,x86,linux,gtk,x86" to get just those 2?

If an example could be shown that would be helpful. Thanks

I found the answer. platformFilter can only supply one environment, but if you run the p2.mirror task a second time with a different platformFilter value it will add files specific to the new platform to the existing mirror from the first pass. This means files already downloaded in the first pass don't get downloaded again, so it's relatively fast. I just have to repeat the p2.mirror task once for each platform I'm interested in, which is easy enough to do in Ant.
