Re: [p2-dev] Can install order be influenced?

Hi Thomas,

Why do you need to have exact install order? 
Startup / install ordering is always a bad thing and would cause you troubles in future.
Do the bundles have activators which use one another? 

Kind regards,

Subject: [p2-dev] Can install order be influenced?


We have a situation where a set of non-osgi components must be installed 
in a specific order (leaf first when looking at the dependency tree). Is 
there any way to tell p2 to call touchpoints in a specific order?

A depends on B which depends on C. I tell p2 to install A which of 
course means it also downloads B and C. Once the resolve and download is 
complete it's essential that C is installed first, then B and lastly A.
