Summary

P2 is used as the provisioning and updating engine for Eclipse and is used to install features, plug-ins (bundles), and native components such as the launcher and associated libraries.

The configuration is extensible, both by embedding references into plug-ins, features, and products, and also to define additional metadata and handlers to install content. Command-line utilities can be used to generate and mirror update sites, as well as provision instances of applications and manage the content headlessly.
