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

Peter Klügl commented on UIMA-2475:
-----------------------------------

I uploaded my uimaj-eclipse-update-site project to http://people.apache.org/~pkluegl/
The actual (composite) update site is located in target/eclipse-update-site and new p2 repository
in target/eclipse-update-site/2.4.0

Steven, can you please test if p2 repository works with Tycho?

Note that this is not a solution, but rather a showcase for testing. The categories are for
example still missing.

I'd propose that we start a discusson what our future update site should look like and how
it is built. 

Here's my first guess:
We have a project with a composite update site that contains all provided versions, e.g. with
all plugins and stuff. Additionally, we could have a probably additional project for building
the latest version of the update site, which is then added to the composite one by a script.
The release manager could then just copy the complete composite update site to the web server.

Has someone already tried to build the update site with Tycho (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Tycho/Packaging_Types#eclipse-repository)?

> 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?
