Resource Maps

Resource maps are used to describe where and how resources, such as Eclipse plug-ins and features (i.e. OSGi bundles), are available to consumers.

In order to make available and propagate knowledge about the component structure of the Simantics platform to users and especially to buckminster, it is important to have Simantics resource maps openly available on the web.

Actions

  • Component queries (CQUERY) are used for materializing components from version control based on resource maps (RMAP)
  • site.p2: For generating a full-fledged P2 site from a specified Eclipse feature project
  • site.p2.zip: For ZIP archiving the the P2 site generated by the site.p2 action.

More information on this tool is still needed, but it seems to be potentially useful in Simantics for easily composing aggregate P2 sites out of all our P2 sites.
