hi we use eclipse 3.4.1 and 3.4.2 for our Rich Client Application. until
now we simply exported a product and installed it fully.

Now we need to update some features when the program starts automatically,
without any User-Interface. we simply want do to somthing like this:

updateFeature(featureID, remoteURL)

so:
1. the api from old update is depricated.
2. the p2utils api used is discourage for usage and we have troubles when
using it..

I simply whant do update a feature from my remote site, as simple as
possible!
what can we do to get this up and running quickly, simple and stable ?

thanks!

Hi,

if you have the option to update to 3.5 you could use this description:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Adding_Self-Update_to_an_ RCP_Application

Best regards, Lars

Hi Lars,

Thanks for this info. i already have reviewed this, and tried the P2Util
example.

unfortunately:
a. the article describes mainly the GUI customization
b. P2Util api example: it does not work for my 3.4.x environment
b.1. p2 overall looks a bit complex to me (see p2util expamle)
b.2. we do not fully understand all those metadata additons from p2

do you think p2 is stable and mature enough used with its programatic api
to be included in a release product for any rcp ?
