Re: [p2-dev] Can I do the Automatic Discovery & Update with Equinox p2?

Hi Frank,

There is an enhancement request to add ECF's discovery API (and some discovery provider implementation) to network discover p2 repositories in the Eclipse ui: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=218534

In recent interactions with Susan (leading the p2 UI effort), it seems likely that this capability will be inserted in 3.5 M5 timeframe.

Here is ECF's discovery API documentation: http://wiki.eclipse.org/ECF_API_Docs

I (Scott) have also created a couple of example apps that use discovery API to publish and then discover available services. I've also worked on one for p2 discovery and then p2-based remote install scenarios for Code9.

So I guess the upshot is: p2 will soon do this (network-based discovery at least)...but network discovery is not present as of 3.4.X stream.

Hey! After going through a lot of p2 marketing, I am still not clear if we can have the Automatic Discovery & Update of RCP application with p2.

Could someone please show me some clues if we can do it? Any hint is highly appreciated!

Thanks so much!
