Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2475?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13474262#comment-13474262

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-2475:
--------------------------------------

Peter, I have no objection :-).  One thing to note: the current design for building the update
site has to do some unusual operations, some "manual", in an attempt to preserve the "previous"
releases at the update site, and incorporate them.  This allows people to select a particular
release (not always the latest). to install.  The description of this process is here (improvements
welcome!): [http://uima.apache.org/release.html#Stage the (partial) eclipse-update-site]

> The UIMA Eclipse update site (www.apache.org/dist/uima/eclipse-update-site) is an Eclipse
3.3 (or older) update site. Since Eclipse 3.4, the recommended update site layout is p2:

> I've been bitten by this update site issue because old-style update sites make it impossible
to resolve build-time dependencies when building Eclipse plugins:

> Could the UIMA update site be modernized to the p2 layout?
