- Thread-topic: [p2-dev] p2 installer tool - unexpected IUs uninstallation
We are checking for eclipse provisioning
tool, that would be used also by the end user, thus we don't mind having a
UI. We are looking for something like the P2 UI (help->"check
for updates"/"install new software"). Is there a standalone version of it?
Can it provision another profile except itself (our product doesn't contain the P2
bundles and is provisioned externally)?
This is because this examplary installer is meant to only install one
If you don't need a UI, then you can use the director

[p2-dev] p2 installer tool - unexpected IUs
We encountered the following issue with the equinox p2 installer tool
(http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/drops/R-3.5.1-200909170800/download.php?dropFile=equinox.p2.installer-3.5.1-win32.win32.x86.zip). Having a repositories Repo1 and Repo2 that have no common IUs:
1) Create an installation by running the installer pointing to
2) then switch to Repo2 hoping to add more
stuff. However after running the installer we found out the existing stuff (from
Repo1) got uninstalled.
Is this the expected behavior? May be there would be more useful and
more intuitive to just add the new stuff to the already existing IUs instead of
uninstalling the existing stuff. In the same way like the P2 UI in
help->"check for updates"/"install new software"
Looking at the generated
ProfileChangeRequest (in the code) - all the existing IUs are set for removal,
and the new ones set for addition.
