First of all I would like to say "Thanks, Ed" for JustJ because it comes with good news which I found your recent blog post: "the ability to update the installation's embedded JRE as new ones are released."
(sorry I cannot share the link because links to external sites are not permitted for me as a first time forum user)
While offering a customized version of Eclipse I had no luck providing a new JRE via p2. I remember the discussion in this bug that has been marked with CLOSED WONTFIX after almost ten years:
That's why I am looking forward to following the instructions about "Building Products that Use JustJ JREs" at https://www.eclipse.org/justj/?page=documentation. (By the way, it includes a link to https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/1104206 which seems to be unrelated.)
While studying the comments to your blog post I found some advice about " touch points to alter the eclipse.ini file to point to the appropriate target VM when installing/uninstalling the feature".
It feels like the information how to prepare for updating the installation's embedded JRE can only be found inside bug reports, forums or mailing lists. Can you recommend some place where to find most helpful instructions or even an example?
