p2, your savior or your achilles heel? Everything an Eclipse team needs to know about p2

Back by popular demand, Ian and Pascal will present their award winning* EclipseCon 2011 talk.

The Eclipse provisioning platform (p2) has made it possible to scale the annual release train to over 2,000 plugins. While p2 provides possibilities that update manager never could, some teams have struggled with its adoption. During this talk we will discuss some of the pain points that project teams have faced when moving to p2, and discuss some best practices moving forward.
In particular, we will focus on:

1. Building a p2 repository
2. Version strategies for your plug-ins and features
3. Categorizing your components
4. The magic of composite repositories
5. Pooling your artifacts

*Ok, we didn't really win an award, but we had very positive feedback ;-).

A gentle introduction to p2

Although introduced in Eclipse a number years ago, p2 has stayed quite mysterious for many. Departing from the previous talks about p2 APIs and its overall architecture, we will introduce p2 more pragmatically presenting the relevant files (profile, content.xml, …), tools (director, mirror, …) and concepts.
At the end of this talk you should be fluent enough in p2 to do the common tasks required to deploy an application and debug basic problems.
