p2

A RESTful microservice for querying p2 repository contents

The p2 API is not known for its intuitiveness and requires an Equinox container at runtime. If repository contents should be accessed programmatically this is a bit overkill. So why not hiding all this in a microservice and make the metadata available through a REST API?

This demo shows how to create a microservice from a headless Eclipse application, integrate JAX-RS and accessing p2 API for querying p2 metadata. It is also a blueprint to make other kind of (headless) Eclipse applications accessible via RESTful services.
