Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-1092) Eclipse Mars.1 plug-in update URL link does not work with Mars.1

Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-1092:
--------------------------------------------

I just tested on a fresh Mars.1 installation and installed vi marketplace without a problem.

I assume there are issues with our mirror system. From update URL "http://directory.apache.org/studio/update/"
Eclipse loads files http://directory.apache.org/studio/update/compositeContent.xml and http://directory.apache.org/studio/update/compositeArtifacts.xml.
The content of those files is generated dynamically and depends on your location and mirror
status (see https://www.apache.org/mirrors/) and links to one of the mirrors. If the mirror
doesn't contain the files for whatever reason the installation fails.

For a normal download of an archive from the website that is not a big problem, you can just
reload the download page and you get another mirror. When installing via update site it's
much more complex. The mirror handling is done in the background and the user cannot simple
switch the mirror and retry.

If I look at the error reports on https://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/apache-directory-studio
I see 34 errors out of 242 installs in February, that is a 14% error rate. I'll remove the
mirror usage for the update site, then we see if numbers improve.

> The Marketplace and Directory Studio Website update link 'http://directory.apache.org/studio/update'
does not work with Eclipse Mars.1.   When requesting plug-in update/install information using
the update link, the Eclipse install/update client is not able to retrieve any plug-in update/install
information with respect to the 2.0.0-M10 release.
> Marketplace says:  "The following solutions are not available:  Apache Directory Studio
2.0.0-M10"
> Direct URL install says:  "There are no items available"
> Update link does work with Eclipse Juno & Luna, did not test with Kepler.
