Questions about the Eclipse Installer are best directed to the Oomph forum:|
Of course I answer the questions there too and since I see your question here, I'll answer here...
The main source of documentation is the wiki with the following as the central index for Oomph's technologies:
Others have asked for a headless mode as well:
On the path towards implementing that, support for Configurations was implemented quite a while ago:
But this is currently used to automate the flow through the wizard, i.e., to select a Product Version and to select one or more Project Streams, as well as to specify specific values for variables or even add other Setup tasks.
Full support for a headless mode could be driven from that as a basis. The installer application already processes command line arguments automatically, i.e., it will process the URI of a Configuration specified on the command line, but as of yet, there is no support to avoid bringing up a dialog to complete an installation process headlessly.
Just the other week, support was added for automatically launching the installer by clicking on a URI in a web browser:
But this has not yet been documented.
Full support for a headless mode is awaiting someone to sponsor it or to contribute it. It's easy to set up a development environment with all the Oomph source as documented here:
My preference would be that someone sponsor a few days of the work need to provide this support. After all, even reviewing contributions, documenting them, supporting them, and then maintaining them long term is also a significant time investment, and time is money...
