I'm working on an Eclipse RCP application - working against Eclipse 4.2.2

I've set up the P2 update process, mainly via the tutorial found on but also requiring a huge amount of googling to find out which p2.* bundles are required.

Now, when i trigger the update handler the application recognises that updates are available from the update site and it claims that the update was successful.

However, the updates aren't retrieved from the update site.

It's taken me just over a day to get this far because of the sparse documentation for the latest versions of eclipse rcp when it comes to P2. I've found it really confusing about how this should be done. Even the tutorial mentioned above only mentions some of the p2.* plugins which must be included to get this even this far.

So, i'm wondering if there's something obvious i'm missing herea or if there's an example application somewhere which uses the latest version of eclipse to pull updates from an update site and nothing else, so i can compare this to what i'm doing and see where i'm going wrong.
