Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2012 17:05:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2475?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13495416#comment-13495416

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-2475:

Following on Peter's suggestion for a future Eclipse update site process - here are some thoughts.

1) I originally "felt bad" about putting binaries like plugin jars, etc., into SVN.  I still
wonder if this the right place for "built" objects like this.  But, the Apache infrastructure
people seem to like this approach - the whole release mechanism is moving toward this kind
of thing.  So, perhaps I should "get over it" :-).

2) In addition to the idea of having a separate project for the update site and/or P2 repository
(we already have a separate project for this - "uimaj-eclipse-update-site" in the uimaj component),
I suggest we have a new, 1-level up thing (a "component", like uimaj, uima-as, addons, builds,
site), that would be for special binary packagings (builds) of our code.  If the only thing
in this (for the foreseeable future) would be the eclipse update site, then I would call this
something like eclipse-packagings.  It would have the update site and the feature and categories
information for how we're organizing these things, as "projects".  It would have it's own
versioning, because it would be updated more frequently than our normal releases.  (The individual
plugins which were tied to other components like the uimaj-ep-configurator, would continue
to carry their particular versions).

> 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?
