Re: [tycho-user] [EXTERNAL] Re: p2-Site to provide build artifacts

The P2 Metadata Genarator doesn’t include filters on p2.inf requirements, which we use to declare a runtime deployment dependency from host bundle to native fragment.

If you're using Nexus, you can use the Nexus P2 plugin that is able to convert any Maven repo to a P2 repo. I'm using it for my IDE build infra. You just need to deploy to Nexus through Maven

Hello Felix,

You might want to have a look at "Package Drone" [1][2].

I am not sure if it provides all that you need, but it is an extensible open source project ;-)

The basic idea is to deploy from Maven (or Maven Tycho) to the package drone server and consume it as P2 or OSGi R5 XML repository.

If you need any help, I am glad to help out.

Hi everyone


I already wrote to this list about a similar topic. But now I have some more questions.

Currently we're building our product with more than 50 bundle + tests-fragments and

want to break it down to smaller and faster builds.

I thought about to provide all artifacts in a p2-site (don't know when to call it targetsite or updatesite).

In the past we build our third-party-p2-site 'manually' (copying artifacts) with the "eclipse-repository" and uploaded it.


I read about the nexus-unzip-plugin and tried nexus for providing our artifacts.

All we get are a lot of single sites with different versions of our artifacts.

The same when I group all unzip-virtual-hosts, I have to add them manually to our targetdefinition-file for every

artifact-group (eclipse-repository) and every version we need.


Don't know if I missunderstood a thing, but is there no way to combine all artifacts and versions to a single site?


I'm thinking about a way to uploading every single artifact (including source bundle) or simple one Feature to a 'server'

which is going to provide a overall p2-site with all Features, versions ....


Are there any examples of using Nexus combined with a big and complex build infrastructure. Only find some small hints

how eclipse solved this issue, but can't get a solution out of this for my situation.


I am grateful for any help!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
