How to create a local update site?

Hello,

I would like to create a local update site to distribute our own nodes to all our working group members in a “less manual way”. We are not looking for anything too complicated: local update from a shared disk would be enough for our purposes.

Is there any manual on how to create the required feature info and what kind of files are required to be placed in the folder where the update repository resides?

Best regards,

Hi Carlos,

This might help a bit. If you target KNIME on eclipse 3.4, 3.5 there might be some problems, although usually those are also fine.
Bests, gabor

The upcoming KNIME 2.1 release will be based in Eclipse 3.4 and use the new p2 system. This also requires some changes on Update Sites. For simple sites, however, it suffices to create a pre-3.4 Update Site and run the so-called MetadataGenerator on it. See http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Metadata_Generator (and some other Equinox P2 pages there).

Thank you very much. I worked as a charm.

I am eager to see the new 2.1 version coming soon!

Best regards,
