You could download the artifacts.xml/artifacts.jar/artifacts.xml.xz, which describe the different binary artifacts available, and then process them to identify the different artifact files.

What are you trying to do?

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the replay.

we have a cloud machine. where i want to place my latest plug-ins. all consumers will download from cloud machine and place it in dropins folder.
want to download plugins using hot-fix url(download.xxxxx.site.xml) and place it in cloud machine.


Regards,
Raju

Why not just use p2 and the normal check for updates mechanism?

So you produce a build on your development box. You want a way to push that site to your cloud machine. Your consumers will download this update from the cloud machine.

If I have that right, then p2 is the recommended approach. p2 doesn't require a smart-server -- it just downloads files via normal HTTP. p2 downloads associated metadata (contents.xml and artifacts.xml), which describe the contents of the site, and then reconciles against its current installation to determine which plugins and features should be downloaded and installed.

Alternatively you can do what I describe in my first answer.

If I misunderstood, please clarify how your setup works.

Brian.
