Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 15:54:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2475?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472489#comment-13472489

Steven Bethard commented on UIMA-2475:

Here's what worked for me:

(1) Fix a bug in the uimaj-eclipse-update-site/pom.xml

-              <outputDirectory>${project.build.directory}/work/plugins</outputDirectory>
+              <outputDirectory>${project.build.directory}/eclipse-update-site/plugins</outputDirectory>

(2) Run {{mvn process-sources}} to copy over features and plugins to {{target/eclipse-update-site}}.
(For some reason, the plugins directory has svn:ignore set, so it's empty. Seems like there
might be a bug where you're putting both features and plugins in the features directory?)

(3) Run the FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher to publish the features and bundles and add the content.xml
and artifacts.xml

$ java -jar /.../eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_*.jar \
   -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher \
   -metadataRepository file:/.../uimaj-eclipse-update-site/ \
   -artifactRepository file:/.../uimaj-eclipse-update-site/ \
   -source /.../uimaj-eclipse-update-site/target/eclipse-update-site -publishArtifacts

I am then able to use {{file:/.../uimaj-eclipse-update-site/}} as a p2 repository (e.g. Tycho
can resolve dependencies from here).

> 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?
