I have an existing third party Eclipse client without update manager or p2/Equinox. I added this manually to the client.
Now I have the options in the client for example install new software. WHen I use it everything works as expected. THere are no errors but - after restart - new features won't be available. For example Subclipse but also others. Nothing works.
The bundle.info is updated by p2/Equinox it has for example
However this directory 2110 does not exist. I have privileges to create directories and so forth. I have for example a standard 3.7.2. Eclipse SDK which works fine in that location.
So the plugins are never installed but p2/Equinox thinks it did install in that folder. There seem to be a check for successful install missing in p2/equinox.
The location is strange btw I think. Should it not install in plugins and features directory? This is what happens in Eclipse SDK 3.7.2 right.
I have worked on this issue for a couple of days. There is not a lot of information on how p2/equinox works. It is a bit a needle in a haystack.
Can it work? Any ideas why it isn't working?
