      Description

      The file [1] on the Tuscany SCA Eclipse update site is very large (72MB) and downloads of this file by Eclipse frequently fail. Using a dynamically generated site.xml file that uses a mirror site for the feature and plugin downloads would improve this. Apache Directory Studio has implemented a solution; see [2] for an example of the dynamically generated site.xml file, and [3] for the sources and description.

        Luciano Resende added a comment - You could use the mirrors for the download/installation: http://www.takeyellow.com/apachemirror/tuscany/java/sca/1.6.2/tuscany-sca-1.6.2-updatesite/

        The solution is to download from a mirror, but how does the user find a suitable mirror? The solution implemented by Apache Directory Server returns a mirror automatically when Eclipse accesses the site.xml file. If a Tuscany user needs to enter a mirror URL manually into Eclipse, how would they get the list of mirrors and how would they know which mirror to choose?

        Cool, if the update site finds the mirror automatically, even better. +1 for going with this approach then.
