be, so I wouldn't build existing solutions on top of it. We've had
major performance and stability issues using it in Nexus 2 as well.

A note about the P2 generator plugins, they dont preserve p2.inf
requirements with a platform filter (used for automatically
installing relevant platform fragment when a consumer installs the
host bundle). A defect was entered for it
which was closed as WONTFIX as P2 support is to be rebuilt on CMA.

Save yourself some grief and just use Nexus with its p2 proxy support
The p2 bridge plugin adds the ability to grovel through artifacts for
OSGi metadata and expose them as a generated p2 repository. Theres
very little documentation about this, and Sonatype seems to have
pulled the nexus-p2-bridge-plugin and nexus-p2-repository-plugin from
their public github site. As I recall, you have to add the P2
Metadata Generator and P2 Aggregator Generator capabilities for each
Maven repository, which then exposes the bundles found as a p2 repo

I would like to mirror several public p2 repositories, host them
with tomcat and finally use them in a target to build my RCP
I read the documentation about the mirror goal of tycho extras
plugin. The pom is correct and the copy seems to work correctly
but there is no category.xml file downloaded from the original p2
repository. As a consequence, I can't add these repositories to
my target file in Eclipse. The "Add Software site" wizard tells
me that there are no categorized items and if I uncheck the
"group by category" checkbox, it tells me that there are no items
I've used the Reficio p2 maven plugin to create my own p2
repository with a few bundles. This plugin generates
<category-def name="all" label="Maven osgi-bundles"/>
| p.namespace == 'osgi.bundle')</expression>
I tried to use this category.xml for the mirrored repositories
but it doesn't seems to work...
So how can I retrieve the category.xml for these repositories or
is there a way to create a default one?
Best regards :)
