You can basically build a p2 update site with PDE Build, Buckminster or |
Tycho - which one to pick depends on what suits you / your organization.
Do you need headless builds and are not already using PDE Build, then I
suggest you use one of the other two which both can build a p2 update
site using Eclipse IDE, or in headless fashion.
Once you produced a p2 update site, simply publish it on a web server.
If you are uncertain about how all the parts fit together (features,
plugins, fragments, products, p2 update sites, update managers, etc.
etc.) then I recommend the Introductory chapters of the "Bucky Book"
available from the Buckminster update site.
How to actually use PDE, Buckminster or Tycho are topics for their
Hope that helps.
