This page is a landing page dedicated to Infrastructure related issues for the EclipseLink project.

P2 Update Sites

EclipseLink currently organizes its update sites into two general categories; "released builds, and "incremental builds". Where "released builds" consist of product releases and thier associated bugfix maintenance patches, and "incremental builds" represent a specific "milestone" or a nightly build. There is a specific root site for each.

The latest available release can be found at: http://download.eclipse.org/rt/eclipselink/updates. Past releases can be found in a version specific subdirectory under that site. For example:


Nightly and milestone releases are stored similarly. However, it should be noted that due to space restrictions only the latest milestone or nightly build for releases currently under development are made available.

The use of composite repositories for the update sites is being investigated. While there are several advantages for maintenance and to users, there is a major drawback in that it would be easy for a user to inadvertently select *all* available released or incremental versions. Thus cluttering thier system, and causing a maintenance head-ache of thier own. No solution to this issue is currently available, however, not using a composite repository for incremental builds also has issues in that the user would need to be intimately familiar with the EclipseLink Project's current development schedule to know what versions are currently under development, and thus available. We may implement a composite update site for incremental builds only.

P2 organization

The Project update site is centered around catagorized features. Currently, all project update repositories are categorized under "EclipseLink" and "EclipseLink Source", though do to a bug currently under development most release sites do not show the categories properly.

EclipseLink is currently made up of six (6) features. They are:

  • EclipseLink JPA (org.eclipse.persistence.jpa)
  • EclipseLink MOXy (org.eclipse.persistence.moxy)
  • EclipseLink SDO (org.eclipse.persistence.sdo)
  • EclipseLink JPA Source (org.eclipse.persistence.jpa.source)
  • EclipseLink MOXy Source (org.eclipse.persistence.moxy.source)
  • EclipseLink SDO Source (org.eclipse.persistence.sdo.source)


Though the jar name of the feature is similar to an EclipseLink bundle of the same name, the two do not conflict because the feature (or in p2 parlance: the Installable Unit) is stored separately from the bundles it installs/includes.

There is a proposal on the table to simplify this offering by making a single "EclipseLink SDK" available. If approved, it will likely be structured as an additional feature that includes only the other EclipseLink features (for backward compatability, and other reasons).

Feature content

The EclipseLink features are not 'nested', but rather are designed as completely autonomous units specific to the utilization of specific EclipseLink functionality. So though every 'feature' depends upon the EclipseLink core, there is no "Core feature". Instead "EclipseLink JPA" groups together all libraries (both project and external) that are distributable and are needed for developing and running an EclipseLink JPA application. The same is true of the MOXy and SDO features. This decision was made because it was felt to be more 'developer-centric', more easily understood and resulted in a less cluttered 'update' display.

It has been requested that a breakdown be made available of the bundles included in each feature outside of the xml projects used to create them (thus sparing the reader from having to understand the "feature.xml" layout). Given the changing nature of these dependencies I will outline the dependencies for the latest release currently under development (2.1.0), with the caveat that the ultimate autority is the feature.xml stored in the "features" subproject of EclipseLink's SVN repository.

Maven Repository

EclipseLink maintains a maven repository for nightly, milestone and release builds. Nightly builds are kept to the latest ten builds per release version. There is a bug being looked into to split the incremental from the release repo. There is also work to determine if recent p2 support for Maven could be utilized to replace the creation of additional Maven repositories.
