Choosing plugins to update programmatically [message #1772891] Mon, 18 September 2017 12:57 Go to next message

I would like to update a P2 repository with Eclipse 4 programmatically and I would like to choose plugins to update. Classic way to retrieve the provisioning job which updates the repository is:

ProvisioningSession session = new ProvisioningSession(agent);
UpdateOperation operation = new UpdateOperation(session);
operation.getProvisioningContext().setArtifactRepositories(new URI[] { uri});
operation.getProvisioningContext().setMetadataRepositories(new URI[] { uri});
IStatus status = operation.resolveModal(sub.newChild(100))
ProvisioningJob provisioningJob = operation.getProvisioningJob(monitor);
IStatus st = provisioningJob.runModal(monitor);

The resolveModal method checks plugins to update. If I print the possible updates I will have only the product and not the plugins to update.
Update[] updates = operation.getPossibleUpdates();


Now, how to choose the plugins I would like to updates? The UpdateOperation object constructor allows me to specify a list of Installable Units, but if I exclude only the plugin I do not want, the system equally updates all the repository.

IProfile self = profileRegistry.getProfile(IProfileRegistry.SELF);
IQuery<IInstallableUnit> query = new UserVisibleRootQuery();
IQueryResult<IInstallableUnit> roots = self.query(query, null);
Set<IInstallableUnit> iiu = roots.toUnmodifiableSet();
if (iiu != null) {
	for (IInstallableUnit i : iiu) {
				logger.info("NAME: " + i.getId() + " - VERSION: " + i.getVersion().toString());
	}
}


What I have from this code, that should search for available updates in all the repository is the only product, with version with timestamp changed (everytime I build with Tycho I have a new version 1.0.0.<timestamp>).

The application performs a simple check of the available updates. I do not need UI to do that.

What am I wrong ?

Thank you.

Hi again,

moreover I tried this piece of code (just trying if with this piece of code P2 is able to understand to update just this feature and not everything):

ProvisioningSession session = new ProvisioningSession(agent);
IProfile profile = profileRegistry.getProfile(IProfileRegistry.SELF);
query = QueryUtil.createLatestQuery(QueryUtil.createIUQuery("Feature_VersionGreen.feature.group"));
final IQueryResult<IInstallableUnit> result = profile.query(query, new NullProgressMonitor());
UpdateOperation operation = new UpdateOperation(session, result.toSet());
IStatus status = operation.resolveModal(monitor);


And I have this error message:

I do not know if this can help... Probably I am missing something.

Thank you for your precious help.

There are some methods on ProvisioningUI for opening wizards for selection, IIRC.

Eclipse Platform committer. Ask me about Eclipse support, training, and consulting.
