Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone new any more details on whether the new
provisioning functionality in Equinox will be able to handle non-Eclipse
applications? I read in one of the newsgroup posts that the provisioning
aspect will be...

"Extensible to support provisioning of Eclipse and non-Eclipse software"

We need to distribute various Eclipse configurations (ie specific versions
plus plugins etc...) but also non-Eclipse tools as part of that. Ideally
on the Agent it'd be great to see a list of all available applications,
including non-Eclipse ones. Is this possible now or is it still something
for the future?

Thanks for any information you can give.

When you say 'non-Eclipse' do you mean OSGi but not dependent on the
workbench, or are you talking about non-OSGi stuff? You talk about seeing
'applications' in the available IU list, but I don't understand what you
mean. You usually provision a profile (which represents a configuration
of a single application) with IUs (which usually but not necessarily
contain a bundle). If your applications are completely separate entities
(e.g. executable files) then they would not be provisioned inside another
