Using an archived update Site (Not Recommended)

You can download the archive of the EMF Facet updates sites from the EMF Facet download page but you will have to resolve the dependencies and find the corresponding archived update sites manually. The EMF Facet team does not provide the list of the archived update sites needed to satisfy the dependencies, because it is too complicated to maintain. That's why this kind of installation is not recommended.
