Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 21:34:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2475?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13470685#comment-13470685

Steven Bethard commented on UIMA-2475:
--------------------------------------

I've never done this, but according to the wiki:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Getting_Started_for_Releng#Update_sites

You should run the the p2 update site publisher (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Publisher#UpdateSite_Publisher_Application)
on the old site, which I guess looks like this:

 java -jar <targetProductFolder>/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_*.jar
 -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.UpdateSitePublisher
 -metadataRepository file:/<some location>/repository
 -artifactRepository file:/<some location>/repository
 -source /<location with a site.xml>
 -configs gtk.linux.x86
 -compress 
 -publishArtifacts

If it worked right, I think it should add a content.xml and artifacts.xml file to your update
site. I'm not 100% sure, but the wiki makes it look like that might be all you need to do.

> 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?
