Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Intermittent p2 failures, best practices for "mirroring"


Tycho supports official mirrors specified in the p2 repository as well as internal mirrors. They have a user mailing list in case you need further help setting this up.

FWIW, I'd like to take this as an opportunity to remind everyone about the purpose of this mailing list. It's for important communication for projects participating in the Eclipse Simultaneous Release. I prefer having discussions in the proper channels, which allow the whole community to participate (and potentially re-discover answers).

From the archive I see this has been an issue this past week so I guess you guys are doing something about it but I have some questions relating to setting up a cache that may save you a small amount of bandwidth.

I'm using maven+tycho and at one point it seemed like adding multiple p2 repos didn't really help for some cases of failure (the other repo wouldn't get tried), but this was forever ago so maybe i'm miss-remembering or the situation was very specific.

I've used Nexus 2.x (still do) but it's p2 support wasn't great at the time from what i could tell; I'm looking a bit at Artifactory, is it worth switching?  There's nexus 3.x as well
