In a pure e4 application I want to do p2 updates with authentication.
I have setup a web server which hosts a p2-updatesite with authentication. If I visit the url with a webbrowser I get a login dialog. If I visit the updatesite with the eclipse standard "Repository Explorer" View a LoginDialog (org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.ui.dialogs.UserValidationDialog) is shown.

So I wanted to add the plugin org.eclipse.equinox.p2.ui to my e4 rcp application in the hope that the dialog will be shown automatically. But this plugin has a dependency to org.eclipse.ui (which should not be used in a pure e4 application, afaik).

How is it possible to do p2 updates for a pure e4 application with authentication (even better over https)?

Best regards,

p2 uses the OSGi Services mechanism to find services. You'll want to provide an implementation of the org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core.UIServices;
