Equinox/p2/Hosting repositories

Hosting a p2 repository on a web server does not require any specific capabilities from the server: no servlet, no PHP, nothing. Just the ability to serve files,.

In order to make a repository available on a server, simply copy the files produced by the export/build of the feature or the product on the server. Typically a repository looks like this, but there could also be other files.

    content.xml (or content.jar)
    artifacts.xml (or artifacts.jar)
    plugins/
      <files>
    features/
      <files>
    binary/
      <files>
