Our installation program is supposed to allow installation of additional
plugins to our RCP application using the p2 director as described in .platform.doc.isv/guide/p2_director.html

1) How can we test that the installation succeeds?

2) There exists the parameter -verifyOnly described as

"only verify that the actions can be performed. Don't actually install
or remove anything."

First, I observe that calling with this parameter changes *something*,
e.g. there are new directories in the configuration folder after that.

Second, the same question applies to this call: How can we recognice a

I observe that on failure a .log file is produced in the configuration
directory, but this seems not to be documented (AFAIK). Are we really
supposed to search for such a log file as indicator?

Thanks & Greetings from Bremen,

Daniel Krügler

hi Daniel,
p2.director will exit with 0 if it succeeds, or with an error code otherwise.
Regarding the files created with -verifyOnly, I guess that they're the cache files, created on first application start.
