I am trying to use P2 install in my RCP application in Eclipse Helios. But when i trying to connect to CVS repository ":pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/rt" throws me an error saying Repository is not available. After that came to know CVS is not in use now and replaced by GIT.

If thats the case how to use P2 install in my RCP application thru this GIT? any document available to refer the steps? Your help is much appreciated.

When I used Helios, the Git integration didn't work (as I recall). I
prefer Git and so used Git * * outside of Eclipse * *, which worked fine.

An option (still in Helios) that spans between CVS and Git is
Subversion, in the form of subclipse or subversive. This worked for me
also in my time prior to preferring Git.

Hope this helps.

Here's what I can tell you...

1. Install git on your host, apt-get install git, etc. (yes, you can
find it for Windows, but I'm not a Windows guy, Google is your friend
there).

2. You said Helios. I would NOT use the eGit plug-in on that version,
but I think it was available. If you want to use eGit, please ask
questions in the Eclipse eGit forum.

3. Sign up at Bitbucket.org. They'll provide you with free space for any
projects you want and their on-site doc is pretty good. It's a great
hosting site and you can even share with up to 4 other guys before
paying. GitHub is also amazing, but, unless you're willing to pay, your
stuff is public.

4. I took notes back when I started using Git including on Eclipse
projects. These are here, your mileage may vary:

I don't, however, advise you to stay on Helios. It was a really great
Eclipse version, but you should move ahead already. Asking questions
about Helios particulars may not always bring the quickest and most
generous responses from the forums. I'm not an RCP guy, but I think that
you'll get a lot more help with RCP if you keep up with the latest
Eclipse versions.

And come back here with Eclipse questions!

Cheers.

You seem to be confusing two distinct things, p2 and SCM (Source Code Management)/version control. P2 is Eclipse's own installation manager, totally unrelated to SCM tools like git, cvs, svn, etc. A p2 repository is NOT the same thing and does not serve the same purpose as a git/cvs/svn repository.

Can you explain in more basic terms what you're trying to achieve?

Basically, am trying to develop a RCP application with RTC installed in it. I have developed a RCP product now with basic features to install new software options., So thru this, am trying to add a RTC repository in the RCP product. But getting an error now saying "An internal error occurred during: "Contacting Software Sites".
java.lang.NullPointerException"

Not able to install any new software now. Any help is much appreciated.
