I have a .zip file to be added into eclipse using Help-->software update-->Add Site-->Archive-->Install. This works fine this way. I am automating this action and need it to be added using command line.
I got to know this is possible using P2 director but I am facing 2 issues here...

1. I don't see any files under p2\org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director folder
2. Also can someone tell me what would be the exact command line in order to achieve this. I have .zip file placed in C:\

Thanks in advance.

The command line to install from a zipped repo using the eclipse install
itself would just use the jar URL:

eclipse/eclipse \
-application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
-noSplash \
-repository jar:file:///Users/Pascal/repo.zip!/ \
-installIU org.eclipse.releng.tools.feature.group

Sir I have tried the following command:

eclipse -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -repository jar:file:/D:/myFeaturePath/feature.zip!/ -insstallIU org.eclipse.releng.tools.feature.group

It does not do anything.
Please help.

Did you mean -installIU instead of -insstallIU?

Yes correct -installIU it is. That was typo but still it does not work. Eclipse loading screen comes up but the closes automatically. Is my command correct?

It looks like you're running on Windows, so I'd use eclipsec.exe instead of eclipse.exe so that you get a console. I'd also pass in the -consoleLog argument so that if there are logged exceptions they are printed to the console:

I wonder if you're missing things like the -destination and -profile:
