[tycho-user] install independent features in RCP

Hi there,

I am trying to find out whether it is possible to install independent features (features on root level) into an rcp with tycho or not. On the net I find some contradictory information about this topic:

There is which exactly covers that topic. Still unresolved in bugzilla, but a reference to says that the feature is implemented right now. To my understanding it should be possible to solve the issue by using a touchpoint action using a standalone director. So I set my pom to


And add a product.p2.inf


Unfortunately the build fails:

An error occurred while configuring the installed items
 session context was:(profile=DefaultProfile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Configure, operand=null --> [R]sample.product, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.eclipse.actions.InstallFeatureAction).
 Installable unit contains no artifacts: [R]sample.product

On stackoverflow there is a comment from Tobias Oberlies that such a touchpoint action cannot work anyway:

So what's the current status of installing features?
BTW: For my tests I was using tycho 0.16.0.

Best regards
