Update Site for Old Versions [message #690668] Thu, 30 June 2011 00:21 Go to next message

Just realized that http://download.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/36/update/ only references the most recent feature versions (had a build break because the target definition referenced version 2.1.2.e36x-20110307-1000 of the org.eclipse.contribution.weaving feature, but this has been replaced with a version 2.1.3.e36x-20110622-1300).

Is there a update site location that I can use to reference features in a more stable manner?

There is no update site, but there are zipped snapshots of older versions. On the downloads page, there is a link to all the old versions. http://www.eclipse.org/ajdt/downloads/

2.1.2 is available here:

ps- to use the zip file, download it and point your p2 installer (or target definition) to this zip file. The zip file is a full p2 update site.

It doesn't look like the Eclipse Target Definition editor is happy when I point it at a zip file like so:

<location includeAllPlatforms="false" includeMode="planner" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="org.eclipse.contribution.weaving.feature.group" version="2.1.3.e36x-20110622-1300"/>
<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/36/update/ajdt_2.1.3_for_eclipse_3.6.zip"/>
</location>

I can probably unzip the update site somewhere and make it available in the archives area of Eclipse.org. Would that work for you?

Having stable, version-specific update site URLs would be useful. But in the long run, I should probably figure out how to set up a cache for third-party bundles to avoid such problems. That must be what everyone else is doing, if I'm the only one complaining.

Another possibility, could you download the zip and unzip it locally? I don't mind unzipping the archive at eclipse.org, but unzipping it locally may give you more control over it.

No one has asked for this before.

What versions of AJDT are you looking for specifically?

What versions of Eclipse are you targetting?

Everything works fine for me after updating my target definition to reference version 2.1.3 of the org.eclipse.contribution.weaving feature instead of 2.1.2.

But I'd like to avoid unpredictable build failures when the version of a feature that is referenced from a target definition disappears from its update site. Also, I may once in a while need to build an older version of the RCP application I am working on, in which case it is nice not having to go hunt for old versions of features that have disappeared from their original update sites.

OK. I created the following update sites:

http://archive.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/36/2.1.3/
http://archive.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/36/2.1.2/
http://archive.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/37/2.1.3/

each location has the specified AJDT version for the specified Eclipse version. You can expect that these update sites will remain indefinitely. And I will add to them as more releases become available.
