Hello,

i would like to integrate the EGIT plugin in an RCP application. Which plugins have to be integrated into an RCP application for a decent installation?

In addition i have integrated the p2 Update Manager in my RCP application. Which Update sites do i need to install the latest plugin from EGIT in an existing RCP application?

Note: I was able to install earlier versions of the plugin without any problem. But now i get some strange errors after ca. 30% of the installation(Eclipse 3.6.1):

"An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=profile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Comparison method violates its general contract!

Any help is appreciated!

You need at least the following features:
- org.eclipse.egit
- org.eclipse.jgit
to enable debugging in case of problems you may want to add the source features
- org.eclipse.egit.source
- org.eclipse.jgit.source
to enable Mylyn integration for task based workflow add feature
- org.eclipse.egit.mylyn
to add support for team projects sets add feature
- org.eclipse.egit.psf

Find the URLs for p2 repositories of EGit releases here [1]. If you want the nightly
build use [2]. I have no clue what's causing the error you see.

If you're RCP application doesn't use things from the IDE plug-in (e.g., a workspace) you may be better at just using org.eclipse.jgit and/or org.eclipse.egit.core... depending what dependencies you want to bring in.

Matthias, Chris, thanks for the fast answers.

I don't know why i get these error messages with an existing installation of my application. However, with a fresh install everything seems to work fine.
Maybee some plugin interaction causes the errors like this:

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=profile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

I am trying to do the same thing. Where do I find how to add access the ui from my application? Do I need to add an extension point to my code to show the eGIT ui?

The EGit UI is integrated with the Eclipse team framework, so you probably need quite some Eclipse platform features installed into your RCP app to make this work.
