Custom distros for private use? [message #576195] Thu, 28 February 2008 18:05

I'm attempting to use the EPP features for creating a custom distro for
use within my company. It is mainly a version of Eclipse with the
plugins we need already installed and ready to go. I have a few questions:

1. Is creating custom distros for private (local) use an expected use of

2. Which versions of Eclipse are expected to be in the rootFileFolder?
The RCP versions? SDK? I don't want to have a mirror of the entire downloads and am wondering what I need for EPP to build bundles.

3. Are update sites supported? (I was having problems
pulling a feature from a non site and want to make sure EPP
wasn't hardwired to work with

4. (This may be related to question 2 above) I've created a
configuration file and, using the CVS version of EPP as described in
"How to build a package locally" it seems to get through a lot of the
packaging process until it gets to the "Building configured
application..." step. All I see is (via an ant target):

> [java] Building configured application...
> [java] Configuration files taken from /home/aaronsi/workspace/packagerConfiguration.
> [java] The application will be built in /home/aaronsi/workspace.

at which point it dies silently. Any idea on what should be happening
next or what I'm doing wrong? I have the SDK and RCP eclipse packages
in the rootFileFolder.

Thanks for any info.
