Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Release Geronimo Eclipse Plugin 2.1.0 (RC1)
Date Sat, 26 Apr 2008 06:01:25 GMT
HI Vamsi, As per the release process for the GEP 
( the 
staging site that I've created can be used to emulate the various eclipse update 
sites where the server runtimes and the GEP can be downloaded. As it is now 
though, the st.v21.core plugin of the GEP on the staging site will point back to 
the same staging site for downloading the runtimes, and only that staging site. 
The "absolute urls" as you call them will get resolved/updated when the GEP is 
released and pushed out to the official Eclipse update sites. You can still 
unzip the file if you wish, but you still must add the 
staging site as a remote update site for the plugin to find the server runtimes. 
Sorry for the confusion, and I can update the instructions if they need 
clarification. Hope this helps. Thanks
