I wanted to make folks aware of a useful, well-hidden feature of
Oomph. We've been indexing all the p2 update sites at
download.eclipse.org to make it easier to find the one you need. Rather
than describing it in a note, I've documented it in the wiki.
I hope you find this useful.
Another notable, and well hidden, feature is the fact that in RC1 Oomph
provides improved p2 mirror utilization. You should notice that the
installer is significantly faster (at downloading artifacts) because it
better measures the performance of each mirror to select the fastest,
and it uses more threads to exploit them. By default 10 in the
installer and in the installer-created applications. You can influence
this with -Declipse.p2.max.threads=<> in the installer's ini or your
installation's ini; the installer's property value will propagate to the
installations it creates.
Even more well hidden is that fact that installations created based on a
bundle pool (the default), now support roaming, i.e., you can move the
installation folder on disk after its been installed. And finally, as
of RC2, read-only, pool-based installations are supported. Probably
most of you won't use these last two capabilities, but your user base
