Build updatesite doesn't create web/* and index.html [message #57633] Wed, 22 April 2009 07:39 Go to next message

Hi to everyone,

I tried to create an updatesite with one feature. This feature includes 3
plugins.
I tried to build it with the eclipse build-in opportunity (build suite).
After some really unpredictable and funny effects and errors,
today I can build the site.
The plugins and Feature-Jars are correctly build in the updatesite-path.
The only problem I still have, is, that the "web"-path and the index.html
are not created.

Can you help me to find out why it doesn't work and how I can manage to
do?

Thanks so far

Greetings
Markus

I'm not sure what you're expecting it to generate, but an update site
does not have any user-visible content, only site.xml, features/,
plugins/, and possibly some p2 metadata files.
What are you expecting beyond that?

Hi Eric,

I did build the updatesite once and I got a index.html-file content.xml,
artifacts.xml and an directory web, which includes site.css and
site.xsl....

Does an updatesite just work even if there are only plugins-path,
features-path and the site.xml?
I just thought, that the files, which are generated no more, are needed.


Greetings
Markus

index.html and a web/ directory would be optional; only site.xml,
plugins/ and features/ are required.
I seem to remember an option somewhere to generate web content, but I
can't find it now.

Hope this helps,
Eric

The option is in the wizard when you create a new Update Site Project;
I'm not sure if it marks the project in any way so that those files are
re-generated automatically; you'd haven to create such a project and see
how it's .* files differ from the one you have.

Hope this helps,
Eric
