package org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core
Provides core support for interacting with a p2-based provisioning system

Package Specification

This package specifies API for creating, using, and extending a provisioning system. A provisioning agent ties together a set of related services that work together to implement a provisioning system. For end users of the provisioning system, they simply instantiate or obtain an agent and get the services they require from the agent. Extenders can register a factory for adding new services to the system, or add services directly to an agent.

This package also provides some basic utility classes that are common across large parts of the system.
