Specifying dependend update sites to one's own [message #60444] Mon, 11 May 2009 09:20 Go to next message

Hello everyone,

currently I'm creating a feature project to some Plug-ins that depend on
features provided by third party update sites. I'm looking for a way
allowing the end user to only check my feature in the update manager and
the dependend update site gets visited by the update manager transparently
to the user.

Now, in the feature editor I found under "Information" the "Sites to
Visit" tab and added the depended update site there:
<url>
<discovery label="Object Teams Updates"
url="http://www.objectteams.org/distrib/otdt-updates-1.2"/>
</url>

But when I try to install my feature, the other update site is not
visited. Is this a bug, or is "Sites to Visit" not the right way to do it?
I'm using Eclipse 3.4.2.

Cheers,
Rob

In your site.xml you can specify an "associate sites" URL that lists
other sites to use for installing dependencies. The DTD and some
explanation can be found here:
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/misc/update_sitemap.html


For an example, see this update site:
http://downloads.skywayperspectives.org/builder/updates/site .xml and
also the URL that its associateSitesURL points to.

Hope this helps,
Eric
