Re: [p2-dev] SimpleConfigurator/ not get created in the product structure

Hi Pradeep,

In my experience it is necessary to include the p2 features directly in the product:
You can either include them in your feature [1].
Or include them directly in your product file [2].

I hope this helps.

With both techniques we end-up hardcoding the exact version of p2 and equinox used by the product.
I wish there was a way to have a looser coupling and I tried a variant of [1] where I simply 'require' the p2 features.
Unfortunately, p2-director would not generate the simple configurator in the case.
If someone knows how to do this let us know!

Hi devs,

I'm trying to build a product configuration using p2 director.

First I wrote a simple bundle which only has an activator. Then I
created a feature that refers to the created bundle. then I,

1. published the features/bundles using featureAndBundlePublisher (i
put the feature and bundle in a directory and gave that directory as
the source to publisher) in to p2-repo

2. Published the .product file in to the same p2-repo.

3. Then I installed the product using the director application, by
giving the created p2-repo and the helios p2-repo as the repositories.

Things are working fine, except the generated config.ini file list
down the osgi bundles using osgi.bundles property.
I want to use simpleConfigurator in my product. I cant figure out,
what should i do to enable simpleConfigurator to appear in my
Any Suggestions, pointer will be greatly appreciated.
