Re: [p2-dev] can platform be updated via p2?

If I'm reading what you're describing correctly, you are starting with a 3.6.0 SDK zip. You can't take a 3.6 SDK and replace the platform that it contains. What the error message you posted says is that the SDK 3.6.0 requires the Platform 3.6.0 and if you install Platform 3.6.1 then you will break it.

Coincidentally enough, the p2 team has been working on a new feature so if you run into the problem described above, we will recommend that you also update the SDK to 3.6.1 (if available) and then your install will complete. The feature is almost implemented and will appear in the 3.8 integration builds soon.

If you use the Platform zip (e.g. eclipse-platform-3.6.1-macosx-cocoa-x86_64.tar.gz) you will see the platform.ide IU:
<unit id='org.eclipse.platform.ide' version='3.6.1.M20100909-0800'>

So to fix your problem you either need to use a Platform zip (and update the org.eclipse.platform.ide IU) or change your command-line to update the org.eclipse.sdk.ide IU.

There is no IU called org.eclipse.platform.ide in the p2 zip ( The only IUs in that p2 with 'platform' in the name are:
Here's what I get (cleaned up) when I try to update the platform in the 3.6 SDK with the one from the 3.6.1 p2 zip
      Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.
      Software being installed: Eclipse Platform 3.6.1.r361_v20100909-9gF78GrkFqw7GrsZnvz0JWNTeb6fue6896L ( 3.6.1.r361_v20100909-9gF78GrkFqw7GrsZnvz0JWNTeb6fue6896L)
      Software currently installed: Eclipse SDK 3.6.0.I20100608-0911 (org.eclipse.sdk.ide 3.6.0.I20100608-0911)
      Only one of the following can be installed at once:
      Eclipse Platform 3.6.0.v201006080911 (org.eclipse.platform 3.6.0.v201006080911)
      Eclipse Platform 3.6.1.v201009090800 (org.eclipse.platform 3.6.1.v201009090800)
I've tried specifying each of the IUs listed above. None of them work.

Finally, here's the cmdline I'm using:

"C:\eclipse_3.7\eclipsec" ^
-application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director ^
-nosplash ^
-consoleLog ^
-profile SDKProfile ^
-installIU "" ^
file:/f:/temp/testp2/plat361p2 ^
-destination f:\temp\testp2\sdk36\eclipse

      Yes, you should be able to update the platform via p2. If you have the platform zip, the may be blocked by the org.eclipse.platform.ide InstallableUnit. Try updating that instead. _______________________________________________
