Re: [cdt-dev] Best way to send a patched CDT?

Hi, James,

I think I've read somewhere that bundles in the dropins/ folder cannot supersede bundles installed by P2:  the P2 reconciler/discovery thing ignores anything it finds that has the same ID as an installed IU.

I have attempted this before, with no joy.  Mind you, I should mention that I have attempted the patch feature method, also without success.  But probably I did something wrong ... which is easy to do :-D

I'm trying to find the most efficient way to send a patched CDT to someone.
Sending all plugins is kind of big and I'd like to avoid it.
If I build a single plugin, can the recipient manually replace the plugin in a nightly build zip file?

The nightly build zip file is a p2 update site. There's XML in there that describes the IUs so manually replacing the plugin won't work.

Feature patches can work if you want to be able to update your changed plugin set using the p2 UI.

If you're just distributing one plugin for testing, say, the dropins folder should do the trick (and is likely the easiest way). NB if you don't increment the plugin's version number in the plugin manifest p2 will just ignore it!


Thanks for any suggestions
