Subject Re: IvyDE updatesite packing again
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2010 20:58:49 GMT
>From the Eclipse documentation concerning the pack200="true" attribute we
have on our updatesite:

"This lets the Update Manager know that the site contains packed jars, and
it will look for a .jar.pack.gz file beside the .jar file that it would
normally download. If the .jar.pack.gz file is found, it will be downloaded
and unpacked, otherwise the .jar file is downloaded as normal."

This indicates to me that a reasonable local test would be to delete all but
the packed jars from a locally staged update site and verify that the Update
Manager will pick up the feature jar correctly.
