I tried to get the P2 update examples from the GIT repository rt.equinox.p2 working. Both examples projects

  • org.eclipse.equinox.p2.examples.rcp.sdknoautoupdates
  • org.eclipse.equinox.p2.examples.rcp.prestartupdate

seem to be not up to date.

In the first example I get the message

Could not locate the running profile instance. The and eclipse.p2.profile properties may not be set correctly in this application's config.ini file.

The second one throws a NPE
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
	at org.eclipse.equinox.p2.operations.UpdateOperation.getInstalledIUs(
	at org.eclipse.equinox.p2.operations.UpdateOperation.prepareToResolve(
	at org.eclipse.equinox.p2.operations.ProfileChangeOperation.resolveModal(
	at org.eclipse.equinox.p2.examples.rcp.prestartupdate.P2Util.checkForUpdates(
	at org.eclipse.equinox.p2.examples.rcp.prestartupdate.ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor$
	at org.eclipse.jface.operation.ModalContext.runInCurrentThread(
	... 38 more

After fixing the example according to I get the same errors.

My question: is there any working example out of the box which could be run under Eclipse 3.7 or 3.8?

Thank you very much.
