Hi all, I tryed to create update site according to this tutorial, but can't install it from the directory as well as jar archive. So, in what way I can export and install my plug-ins?

Regards,
Vladimir

Btw exporting the feature using the export deplorable features wizard might be a better option than exporting as update site

It is a good choice to set up a headless build that creates a p2 repository containing the feature, e.g. with Tycho. However, this requires that you learn about setting up a build process.

If you prefer the "easy" way from the IDE, you can use the export wizard for the feature and export it to some directory. This directory you can use as a local p2 repository for update.

The link describes the creation of an update site. This is still valid, but deprecated. Today, update sites are replaced by p2 repositories.

As long as you stick to xtext 2.8, you can use the buckminster support tzo create P2 archives.

It is neatly described step-by-step in chapter 11 of Lorenzo Bettinis book and doesn't need manual adjustments (beside that you have to install BUCKMINSTER to your Eclipse.

So it's REALLY comfortable and it's a pitty that 2.9 does not support it any more.

this is hard to say.
so can use the "host osgi console" (select it in the console view) to examine the status of the plugins
- use ss rg.casualintellect.editor to get the plugin ids of your plugins
- use start <id> to start them. if they cannot be started you will get some error message.

did you have a look at the error log (view)? does it contain any error message? does the "current ide" have all requirements installed?
