Target Platform within Eclipse 3.5M6 [message #50377] Sat, 14 March 2009 21:16 Go to next message

Hi there,

I created some features and plug-ins and exported them to

D:\exported

with p2 metadata.
The directory contains two directories (features, plugins) and two files
(artifacts.jar, content.jar).

Now I create a target platform in Eclipse 3.5M6. I try to consume this
locally exported features and plug-ins with "Repository and Update Site
Target Provisioner", but it "seems" to contain no features and plug-ins.

Am I missing something?


TIA,
Marco

You need to create an update site project. Add your features and
plug-ins to it. Build it and export it to file system. Now you should be
able to consume it as "Repository and Update Site". What you were
missing was "site.xml"

Thanks for your reply, but the current update site for babel

http://download.eclipse.org/technology/babel/update-site/gan ymede/

doesn't have a site.xml and it works perfect.

Sorry,
Marco

Right. That's because its over http. You can move that d:\exported
behind a webserver and it will work fine for you too. But if you need it
over file:// then site.xml need to be there. Why? Sorry no idea.
