Thanks for the info I will investigate it

Of course, maybe what's being said is the EclipseGenerator app ignores that attribute in the "conversion" to p2 ... in which case, never mind. :)

Unfortunately, there is no out-of-the-box way to do this. You need to
unzip the artifact.jar and patch the property in. This can be done as
part of the build, though.

Another way is to prepare a "template" artifact.xml and instruct the p2
mirror task to use the template when mirroring to the final download

I wish there was a task to set/update properties directly from within Ant.
