I am trying to write a browser for P2 repositories. Currently I am able to retrieve a list of IUs from a repo. Is there a way to get a list of contained plugins from a IU of type feature.group?
I would like to extract plugin names & version info if possible.

thanks
Christian

First, check https://github.com/ifedorenko/p2-browser
It may already solve some of your problems.

Otherwise you need to resolve the requirement and look at the capabilities provided by the IU to see if it is a bundle. For the name, you can look at the properties. There is a helper in p2 code that help deal with getting the translation.

Thanks for the link. I already checked it out, but Igors browser does not go far enough for my intentions.

I was playing around with the requirements, but features consist of plug-ins, included featuers and dependencies.
So i can distinguish between included features and plugins by looking at the required IU. but how can I distinguish between included plug-ins and plug-in dependencies?
Somewhere on the newsgroups I found a hint to check for the version (exact version = plug-in, range or no version = dependency), which might give a hint but will not be a bullet-proof solution, right?

Pascal: could you point me to the helper class to resolve properties like %name?
Thanks

Hello Christian,

Do you already have a solution for this problem.

I am currently have a similar problem:

I would like to know which Feature's contain a specific plugin in a given update site.

I am using OOMP repository explorer to see if in the update site a specific plugin is available, but I do not get an information of which Feature is containing this plugin.

In case you already have a solution for this, do share it as it is one of the useful stuff.
