Tycho doesn’t have a plugin to create a composite repo index. But Eclipse does have Ant tasks to add/remove entries to a composite repo,


We currently use maven’s antrun plugin to create an Ant build file, then use Tycho’s eclipse-run plugin to run org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner on the generated file, and that produces the compositeArtifacts and compositeContent files.


The site and the composite site are then uploaded to our server together.

Hi Tycho Users,


I'd like to generate a composite repository for the plugin I'm working on. During the maven build an update site is generated. Manually creating a composite repository does not seem to be very difficult (considering that I need only 4 locations to refer to), but I'd like to automate it.

One option would be using templates and replace placeholders during the maven build, but I was wondering if there's a different/recommended way to achieve the same result using Tycho.
