(Apologies for cross-posting. Trying eclipse.platform.pde as
eclipse.platform.packaging seems to be unattended... If this is not a
suitable newsgroup for this post either, any advice on where I could try
next would be highly appreciated.)

Hi all,

I'm trying to build an Eclipse distribution using the
org.eclipse.epp.package.java product (using 3.5.1).

First, I checked out the org.eclipse.epp.package.java and
org.eclipse.epp.package.java.feature projects from the CVS
(org.eclipse.epp/packages), in my workspace.

Then, I used the P2 mirroring application to create a local mirror of
the 3.5 repository under

D:\Projects\epp\workspace\org.modelplex.platform.epp.mirrors \galileo

Now, I'm trying to run the P2 Director application (as per
http://wiki.eclipse.org/EPP/Galileo_Packages) with the following
arguments (via Run Configurations->Eclipse Application)

Program arguments:
-consoleLog
-m
file://D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.modelplex.platform.epp. mirrors/galileo/
-a
file://D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.modelplex.platform.epp. mirrors/galileo/
-installIU epp.package.java
-destination d:/temp
-profile epp.package.java
-flavor tooling
-profileProperties org.eclipse.update.install.features=true
-bundlepool d:/temp
-p2.os linux -p2.ws gtk -p2.arch x86_64
-roaming

Vm arguments:
-Declipse.p2.mirrors=false -Declipse.p2.data.area=d:temp/eclipse/p2

Running this configuration fails with the following error:

"The installable unit epp.package.java has not been found"

How should I configure/run the director application so that it can find it?

Cheers,
Dimitris

You are missing the metadata for the "epp.package.java" itself.

Depending on what your actually doing, you can just mirror that from
here (I think) http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/packages/galileo/
In this case you don't need the stuff from CVS.

OR, you can build the stuff you checked out of CVS.
I'm not sure the details of building the package, you can try setting up
your own product build on the .product file, or there is also
org.eclipse.epp/rleeng/org.eclipse.epp.pde.build which seems to contain
scripts that might do it for you (see build-pde.xml).

Hi Andrew,

Many thanks for your reply! I mirrored
http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/packages/galileo/ to a local
repository
(D:\Projects\epp\workspace\org.modelplex.platform.epp.mirror s\galileopackages)
and added the local repository to the metadataRepository and
artefactRepository parameters in my launch configuration as follows:

-consoleLog
-metadataRepository
file:///D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.modelplex.platform.epp .mirrors/galileo/,file:///D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.mode lplex.platform.epp.mirrors/galileopackages/
-artifactRepository
file:///D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.modelplex.platform.epp .mirrors/galileo/,file:///D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.mode lplex.platform.epp.mirrors/galileopackages/
-installIU epp.product.java
-destination d:/temp
-profile epp.product.java
-flavor tooling
-profileProperties org.eclipse.update.install.features=true
-bundlepool d:/temp
-p2.os linux -p2.ws gtk -p2.arch x86_64
-roaming

but I'm getting the same error. Any thoughts on what I should try next?

Cheers,
Dimitris

Hi Andrew,

I think I should be mirroring
http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/packages/galileo/ SR1/
instead. I'll try that and get back to you if the problem persists.

Hi Andrew,

I've made some progress but still no cigar. I've had to copy the
contents of technology/epp/packages/galileo/SR1 from
download1.eclipse.org as the mirroring application would not create the
correct artifacts.jar/content.jar (for some reason).

Now I've got past the epp.package.java error on to the next one:

Missing requirement: EPP Java Package 1.2.1.20090918-0703
(org.eclipse.epp.package.java.feature.feature.group 1.2.1.20090918-0703)
requires 'org.eclipse.epp.usagedata.feature.feature.group 0.0.0' but it
could not be found

Any thoughts on this? What I'm really trying to do is to reproduce the
Java package so that I have a working example on which I can then build
a custom distribution.

Cheers,
Dimitris

Hi Andrew,

Many thanks for your reply! I mirrored
http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/packages/galileo/ to a local
repository
(D:\Projects\epp\workspace\org.modelplex.platform.epp.mirror s\galileopackages)
and added the local repository to the metadataRepository and
artefactRepository parameters in my launch configuration as follows:

-consoleLog
-metadataRepository

-artifactRepository
file:///D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.modelplex.platform.epp .mirrors/galileo/,file:///D:/Projects/epp/workspace/org.mode lplex.platform.epp.mirrors/galileopackages/
-installIU epp.product.java
-destination d:/temp
-profile epp.product.java
-flavor tooling
-profileProperties org.eclipse.update.install.features=true
-bundlepool d:/temp
-p2.os linux -p2.ws gtk -p2.arch x86_64
-roaming

but I'm getting the same error. Any thoughts on what I should try next?

Hi Andrew,

I've made some progress but still no cigar. I've had to copy the
contents of technology/epp/packages/galileo/SR1 from
download1.eclipse.org as the mirroring application would not create the
correct artifacts.jar/content.jar (for some reason).

Now I've got past the epp.package.java error on to the next one:

Missing requirement: EPP Java Package 1.2.1.20090918-0703
(org.eclipse.epp.package.java.feature.feature.group 1.2.1.20090918-0703)
requires 'org.eclipse.epp.usagedata.feature.feature.group 0.0.0' but it
could not be found

Any thoughts on this? What I'm really trying to do is to reproduce the
Java package so that I have a working example on which I can then build
a custom distribution.

Cheers,
Dimitris
