that helps a lot for my first steps. Pulse sounds promising, but it is
not available for Solaris :-( I had contact with Todd Williams about
I figure the bundles.info should go into a user configuration
tree (starting Eclipse with the -configuration option), right?
Thanks for your help!

So, regarding your original question, if you look at the configuration
of the Eclipse 3.5 IDE installation you download from eclipse.org,
you will see various p2 files including a bundles.info
definition. The bundles.info
file provides equivalent functionality (at a plug-in level) to what was
done in the platform.xml file previously. It is possible to use the bundles.info
file to tell the 3.5 runtime what set of bundles are required for the
OSGi environment to start up correctly. If you were to have the
bundles you need on the NFS partition you refer to, you would then
configure the appropriate p2/bundles.info
files to have the right setup. There are some APIs you could use
including the p2 director to help automate this though I'll admit that
the flexibility of p2 and the power the platform provides can be a bit
overwhelming when first sitting down to use it.
