Provisioning complex software systems is hard. Eclipse has traditionally used a "zip and ship" approach with its attendant simplicity and short-comings. Ganymede included a new provisioning platform, p2, from the Equinox project. p2 introduces sophisticated infrastructure for full lifecycle provisioning of Eclipse and non-Eclipse resources. This talk introduces the p2 architecture, its current functionality and future directions. We also demonstrate some of the more interesting capabilities.

He co-leads the RT Project PMC and is a member of the Eclipse Project PMC, the Tools Project PMC and the Eclipse Architecture Council and is a Director on the Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors.
