Hello all,

Does anyone know how I can merge two P2 repositories ?

Here is my situation:

I just packaged a new P2 update site, thanks to the "Export > Deployable features" tool of Eclipse (3.5).
Now I get locally a folder, containing one "features" and one "plugins" directory, and two jars named "artifact.jar" & "contents.jar"

But the problem is that I already have a repository on a server (in production mode) that can contain anything. Thus, in order to add my new features on the update site, it seems that I need to merge the two descriptors (artifacts.jar & contents.jar).

How can I do this ?
Do I have to maintain this manually, or do some tools exist to perform such action ?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Best Regards,

We have similar situation, we build a set of products increasing version, and at the end merge new into existing repository.

You can do this simply using p2.mirror task (artifacts are merged automatically).

My example code at the end of headless build.
		<p2.mirror source="${}">
			<destination kind="metadata" location="${p2.repo.location}" compressed="${p2.compress}" name="${}" />
			<destination kind="artifact" location="${p2.repo.location}" compressed="${p2.compress}" name="${}" />
			<slicingoptions includeoptional="false" />

Task is explain in eclipse help.
