Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Download stats for p2


I didn't see Martin Oberhuber's response before I sent out my question. Sorry for the duplication. However, it seems from the bug he sites ( that this WON'T be supported in publisher for Helios (I'm using the FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher class not the UpdateSitePublisher).

Am I wrong?

From the description on I either need to edit the xml or add information to a project to get this generated for me. However, I am using headless execution of 'publisher' to generate our P2 repositories.

Do you know of any way to have publisher create the necessary properties when the repo is being created?

It seems possible that I can change the feature.xml to specify the download.stats property, but I'm not exactly certain where/how.

Any insight would be appreciated.

You could actually have it easy both ways.

When using the Download Stats UI, searching for "somejar-versionid" will return both URLs, and can be grouped into a single result. Obviously, searching for /stats/webtools/somejar-versionid will return only those results in the webtools directory.

BTW: no need to pollute the URL with "/releases" unless you're keen on maintaining consistency with the location of the file on /helios/somejar should work, and will still allow you to separate the two service releases, /helios/sr1/somejar and /helios/sr2/somejar.

Adding an indicator of the repository source should be fine. It means a little bit of extra work to collate the statistics to find out the total download count, but if you really want to know what repository downloads are coming from, I don't see why not.

doh. Of course. Thanks for the clarification on 'feature'.

One more question/recommendation ...

I think we should, by convention, add the "repo uri" to the repo specific part?
__ <http://your.stats.server/stats/test.plugin.1.bundle></repo/uri>

so for example ... we'd have
__ <http://your.stats.server/stats/test.plugin.1.bundle>/releases/helios

for the common repo ... but could use
__ <http://your.stats.server/stats/test.plugin.1.bundle>/webtools/repository

for webtools specific artifact repositories.

It would be the same amount of data coming back to, but would help tell which repositories were in use ... in those cases where things are available in multiple repos.

Make sense? Any reason not to?

Thanks again.

The "" is in the metadata but is not an artifact (something that is downloaded during install). There is an artifact containing the feature.xml file that could be used though. Feature artifacts something like this:

<artifact classifier='org.eclipse.update.feature' id='org.eclipse.sdk' version='...'

The stats mechanism works the same on any artifact. So, you could use the artifact for either a feature or plugin with the same effect.
