Re: [p2-dev] How to build an update site for a product?


Shutting down bundle zero will gracefully shutdown the OSGi framework.
Setting the osgi.forcedRestart property will force an exit code that
signals the launcher to restart the OSGi framework ... however I'm not
sure what the standard eclipse launcher does when it sees this exit
code: our customized launcher restarts it.

I hoped some p2 experts might be able to answer this still-unanswered

I've been playing around with shipping a small headless product that
does nothing but replaces itself with a different product.  I have a
similar concern as I too would like to ship Equinox updates along with
my app.

In my case, I'm using the lower-level
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.planner.IProfileChangeRequest-based operations
rather than the
operations so that I can perform IU removals with IU additions/updates
in one fell swoop.  I've got this working well now.  But during my
testing I made a mistake in having the replacement product specify a
different version of the system bundle (org.eclipse.osgi).  Installing
this product and thenapplying the change with
Configuration() led to an IllegalStateException:

	java.lang.IllegalStateException: The System Bundle was updated.
The framework must be restarted to finalize the configuration change

How do I cause a restart?  Is there a generally accepted mechanism in
OSGi, or is calling
