The eclipse.security is only used by the org.eclipse.equinox.launcher jar. The eclipse.security option is used by the launcher bootstrap code to indicate that it should setup a policy which grants itself and the framework ALLPermissions. Then it sets the java.security.manager to the value of

Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200

2008-01-24 Thread Pascal Rapicault
The support for pack200 is in a separate bundle which is not mandatory to the proper functioning of p2. Therefore even if the download manager was trying to get a pack200 version of a given artifact (by checking in the table of content of available artifacts,no round-trip to the server), it would

From the discussion we have had with Markus from the EPP project (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Meeting_Week_Jan_14-18_2008#Ganymede.2C_EPP), it seems that the package configuration file EPP takes as input contains almost everything p2 needs to generate the product IU. We will quickly see if

2008-01-24 Thread John Arthorne
The only support I know is in MirrorRequest#perform, but it is quite rudimentary. Essentially if the repository is local, it prefers a descriptor in canonical form (not packed/zipped), and if the repository is remote it prefers a descriptor in non-canonical form. It doesn't have any further

Just to clarify, the JRE level doesn't matter here. Unpack is performed by a standalone unpack200 executable that doesn't require presence of a JVM. You can run with a Foundation class library, plus a standalone unpack200 executable from Java 5 or Java 6. Jim Colson [EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent

Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200

2008-01-24 Thread Jeff McAffer
right but there is the practical detail that the exe you need comes with Java 5 or later and the licensing does not likely allow you to ship just the unpack200 exe. But that is a matter for someone's legal team. As John says, the unpack support simply cares whether or not the exe is there.

Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200

2008-01-24 Thread Thomas Hallgren
Just out of curiosity, why do you use the external binary to do the pack/unpack and not the java.util.jar.Pack200 class? It seems to me that a fragment that is EE dependent (require Java 1.5 or higher) would be ideal here. Those who run lower then Java 5 simply would not have pack200 which is
