The p2 metadata generator is a utility tool who generates metadata and artifact repositories from a given input

Describing the input

  • -source the path to a folder containing plugins and folders

Describing the output

  • -metadataRepository, the URL to a writtable metadata repository that will contain the produced installable units
  • -artifactRepository, the URL to a writtable artifact repository that will contain the produced artifacts
  • -publishArtifacts, flag indicating whether the artifacts should be published to the repository. (Need to see if this works)
  • -append, flag indicating that repositories will be appended to
  • -root The name of the IU referring to all the IUs that have been added to the repo during the run.
  • -rootVersion The version of the IU
  • -flavor, the flavor associated with the configuration units generated. (This will be removed for 1.0)
