Artifactory provides advanced support for proxying and caching of P2 repositories and aggregating P2 metadata using an Artifactory virtual repository which serves as a single point of distribution (single URL) for Eclipse, Tycho and any other P2 clients.
This virtual repository aggregates P2 metadata and P2 artifacts from underlying repositories in Artifactory (both local and remote) providing you with full visibility of the P2 artifact sources and allowing powerful management of caching and security for P2 content.
For more information on defining virtual repositories please refer to Virtual Repositories.
For P2 support we recommend using Eclipse Helios (version 3.6) and above.
Older versions of Eclipse may not work correctly with Artifactory P2 repositories.
