Run as ... Cloud Application
Eclipse developers use JDT to build awesome Java applications. They use Mylyn to focus their work. They use PDE to domesticate the power of EclipseRT. And they use command line tools to deploy their bundles and features. To improve this, I propose to implement tooling that allows for one-click deployment of any existing Eclipse Feature, for example Eclipse Orion, to Amazon’s EC2.
With the help of the EclipseRTP Cloud Images it is now very easy to deploy an Eclipse runtime with Equinox and p2 to an EC2 instance. Anyway, as soon as it comes to the provisioning of own bundles, you have to complete several steps to get them running. P2 allows to pull bundles from remote repositories, but it's not possible to push bundles to a remote installation of p2 out of the box. Most people therefore deploy their features to a local repository, upload this repository to a web server and use p2 to pull the repository from the web server and install the feature. This project aims to improve this workflow by providing an one-click solution.
