We have an Eclipse C/C++ Embedded developers installation of Eclipse 2023-12 installed on isolated Linux environment (not connected to internet).

How can we bolt on features of the PHP Developers package without direct access to the internet?

We are able to download separately and bring across to the target isolated network. However it is not clear where to go or what to download, or even if it is possible.

Is it possible to install two downloaded packages on the same platform?

We don't provide the release train repositories in zipped form:

https://download.eclipse.org/releases/2023-12/202312061001/

I use a script like this to create a mirror:
#!/bin/sh

eclipse="/d/Users/merks/oomph-1.31/eclipse/eclipse.exe"

if [[ $# != 2 ]]; then
  echo "mirror-eclipse <source-URL> <targetURL>"
else
 $eclipse -nosplash -verbose \
   -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.mirrorApplication \
   -source $1 \
   -destination $2
 $eclipse -nosplash -verbose \
   -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.repository.mirrorApplication \
   -source $1 \
   -destination $2
fi

exit


Any Eclipse installation can be used:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Repository_Mirroring

You can install compatible PHP features from that repository or from a mirror of that repository.

OK, so I am trying to understand how mirroring works.
The installations I want to extend are on a wholly isolated network.
Transfer in/out by USB drives only.

Would I need to
1) set up a mirror on a computer connected to web that would download and replicate metadata and artifact repositories
2) anti-malware scan those folders
3) manually transfer by USB to the isolated network,
4) somehow direct the eclipse installations on local networked workstations to the 'snapshot' of the mirrored repositories.

Any further explanatory information - overview and details would be welcome
Thank You
