I don't think quite understanding the change.†Please read the documentation in the eclipse help on creating update sites and specifically the section about using data entries.† This will give u a better understanding.† But in short you don't put the zip file anywhere locally.† The whole point of the change is so that the distribution does not have to be bundled and you can provide data entries inside your feature which are then mapped directly to a location on the update site.

Hi Sachin, Iíve loaded my local dir with your latest change in trunk.I
moved to wtp-sdk-M-1.5.1-200608032139 build.Where do I suppose to put the
geronimo-tomcat-j2ee-1.1.zip file?

Hereís what the Installable Runtimes document says:

path - if bundleId is specified then represents the relative path of the
runtime zip inside the bundle, otherwise it assumes a relative path of the
runtime archive inside the feature directory

Since you didn't use bundleId in the plugin.xml:

† † <extension point="org.eclipse.wst.server.core.installableRuntimes">
† † † † <installableRuntime id="org.apache.geronimo.runtime.tomcat.11"
† † † † † † featureVersion="1.1.1"


† † † † † † path="geronimo-tomcat-j2ee-1.1.zip">
† † † † </installableRuntime>

I tried to bundle the zip file inside of the
org.apache.geronimo.installableruntime.tomcat.feature jar file it didnít
work.Also tried to put it in the same feature dir as the feature jar file,
didn't work either.Were you able to get the download and install button

This Mojo shouldn't be used and will be removing it in trunk. †I just
changed the installable runtime extension point in wtp (available in 1.5.1
builds).† So you now no longer have to wrap the entire runtime binary inside
a plugin.† And you installable runtime feature would simply contain a single
data entry instead of the plugin entry.† Then in your update site (site.xml)
you map the data entry to whatever url your runtime is located at.

See the installableRuntime extension point defintion in WTP 1.5.1 driver for
an example.

Hi Sachin,

Iíd like to use my own repo (siteRoot below) to get the server image.

* @goal getg
public class GetGMojo extends AbstractMojo {

Is there a better way to do it other than update the value of expression in

Thanks, Lin
