The director application is a headless way of performing some of the p2 operations such as installing or uninstalling installable units. Given the appropriate metadata, this application is capable of provisioning a complete installation from scratch or simply extending your application.
Depending on the needs, this application can be executed inside or outside of the application being provisioned. For complete documentation on the director, including a full list of supported arguments and related examples, see the official p2 director documentation.
- Install into eclipse/dropins/
- Install into eclipse/dropins/ with .link file
