Pain Points 6 old days Slow Startup (2+ minutes) p2 Hostile –Unresolved Plugins (missing dependencies) –Required using “–clean” on upgrades Un-reusable Installer Tangled Release Process Slow Installations in Remote Development Sites
Overview p2 to the rescue 8 Unzip Install Launch Tycho Build Publish to QA repo Sync to Release repo eBay p2 Installer eBay p2 Portal eBay p2 Publisher Ourselves Developers Git
Benefits Consistent Development Environment Configurable Through Profiles Lightening Startup –p2 Friendly. Fail Fast Intuitive Update Awesome New Installer! –Profile Based –GUI, CLI –Reusable Lean Release Process p2 to the rescue 9
eBay p2 Installer Fork existing p2 Installer Profile Based –Support for multiple profiles in UI –Support for local and remote profiles –Define set of repositories –Define installable units Support for non-eclipse based artifacts –New Touchpoint & Provisioning Actions Data Driven UI Enhanced Validation Tracking Support –Customized UDC with additional information 11 p2 in action
Lessons Learned p2 API and documentation needs work –Great docs for high level, concepts are clear –Low level is difficult to understand relationships of objects Automate everything from checkin to publish! Use Tycho to Build Use Replication for your p2 Repositories Mirror external p2 repository internally Monitor your dependencies Give friendly error messages when dependencies are not available future 22
