Eclipse Project Update Sites

Revision as of 12:52, 7 November 2011 by Kmoir.ca.ibm.com (Talk | contribs)

Eclipse build repositories

Eclipse Project builds are stored in p2 repositories that are produced as part of the Eclipse project build process. This page provides an overview of the different repositories maintained by the Eclipse project, and their corresponding location and retention policy.

NOTE: Nightly builds are produced every night from whatever has been released into the HEAD stream of the CVS repository. They are completely untested and will almost always have major problems. Because nightly builds are produced in a different way from integration builds, the nightly build repository should only be used in conjunction with nightly builds.

See the online help article Adding a new software site for instructions on how to add a new update site to your Eclipse installation.
