Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 13:44:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2475?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13500227#comment-13500227

Peter Klügl commented on UIMA-2475:

Sorry for the late response.

about 1)
I totally agree with you on the matter of binaries in SVN, but building something each time
for all different versions is neither a good/clean solution in my opinion. Maybe we find a
better solution in future :-)

about 2)
+1, good idea

Just another comment about the composite repository: With this approach, we can also easily
separate the bundles with different release cycles, e.g., uima-as could get its own update
site. I am also thinking of the TextMarker update site, of course.
The future layout of the repository could look something like:

composite repository
- legacy
- uima-{version}
- uima-as-{version}
- ... other stuff like uima-textmarker-{version}

A single update site project like uimaj-eclipse-update-site (for uima-{version}) would then
only build the current version and could copy and add itself to the composite repository in
the packagings project during the "deploy" phase.

So, how to proceed from here? Are there any objections about the general layout/structure?
Would it be ok to double release the bundles, to add a child p2 repository for the 2.4.0 release
respectively, or do we have to wait for the next release?

> 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:
