We would like to run Eclipse Installer in a continuoes integration environment.

Doing so would require running Eclipse Installer from the command line and specifying all a user would enter in the Eclipse Installer GUI (product catalog, JRE location, installation path...) via some sort of input file or command line parameters.

Is this possible?

Thanks.

It's possible in principle now with the support for Configurations:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#Automation_and_Specialization_with_Configurations

This way it's possible to specify the Project Version (and Project Streams) to install as well as to fully specify the values for all prompted variables. What's missing is a headless application to process it. Perhaps someone will be interested in funding/developing that...

This is the topic of https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=487626 where there was some effort invested, but not taking the best design approach. I.e., I really don't want something with a large/endless set of command line parameters.
