Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2012 19:20:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2475?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13483494#comment-13483494

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

Our actual update site is in www.apache.org/dist/uima/eclipse-update-site.  You can point
some browsers (like firefox, but not chrome) to this URL and see the contents.

The release manager, after a release is approved, is responsible for copying the right files
from the uimaj-eclipse-update-site project / target /eclipse-update-site to this spot (using
the normal release protocols, of course).

The actual official update site has all historical versions of the plugins; the uimaj-eclipse-update-site
project will just have the "new" ones, which is why careful copying is needed :-).

Note that this directory on www.apache.org/dist/uima  is part of Apache's "mirror" system.
 We attempt to allow the Eclipse install mechanism to discover the mirrors and make use of
them.

> 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?
