This wiki page outlines the steps necessary to run the EPP Wizard with the patches found in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=244666.
As the EPP Wizard is an RAP RWT application, first get that following the instructions at: http://www.eclipse.org/rap/gettingstarted.php.
It might be necessary to get the latest P2 code from CVS, especially for debugging. P2 is part of the Equinox project.
Unfortunately, as of yet not in CVS, waiting for IP process clearance (cf. https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=244666)
Check out the following project from the EPP CVS:
This step generates a metadata repository (essentially a file called content.xml) from IU definitions (see EPP/Obsolete/Wizard/Proposal for better P2 Integration).
This step can be started with the Launch configuration "Metadata generator.launch"
The project "org.eclipse.epp.wizard" contains two properties files for configuration (eppwizard.properties and installerbuilder.properties) that determine the configuration of the wizard. Usually only the paths and URLs need to be changed, see the comments in the files for further information. Note that the directory containing the content.xml described in the step above must be accessible at the property value of "epp.metadata", either via "file:" or "http:" protocol.
The Launch configuration "EPP Wizard (Jetty)" launches an OSGi application with an embedded Jetty servlet container serving on port 8008. The EPP wizard can then be reached at http://localhost:8008/rap.
