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)

Producers of repositories may be interested in reading the recommendations on repository retention policies.
