Mirror update sites referenced in setup [message #1731994] Wed, 11 May 2016 14:06 Go to next message

Is there a way/tool to mirror all referenced update sites of a product and its projects, essentially creating one big self-contained update site?

I am trying to have an Oomph setup with regular update sites, then ship this setup to a customer who wants to be able to execute it locally, without depending on current availability of the update sites. The customer would have a custom installer that redirects all update sites to their local mirror.

I realize that such a mirror might become quite large but size and mirror times are not a constraint for our purposes.

Johannes,

To create our tutorial setups (so they work without internet access),
I've used p2 mirror application:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Repository_Mirroring

I created one mirror per repository involved, and used the same folder
convention such that a single redirect of
http://download.eclipse.org/->file:/mirrors/ would redirect them all. I
did similar things create local clones the redirect all those to one folder.

You might write a nice script for that. You could copy all the loaded
repositories from the log. I'm not sure, but I think the mirror
application aggregates composites.

Hi Ed,

how do I configure the installer to use such a mirror? We would like to use Oomph to setup SDKs for a couple of hundred developers (in-house). The installer should use the update site mirror from our intranet instead of pulling everything from the internet.

Got it, I just added them as "repository" to the setup file and now the mirrors are used.

If you hosted your own product or project catalogs you could use it that
way.

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#Hosting_your_own_index_.2F_catalogs

Or you can add a bunch of -Doomph.redirection.* options to the
eclipse-inst.ini. Or, if you host your own setups, you can specify
Redirection tasks in much the same way.
