Why BIRT 4.6.0 does not contain Zipped P2 repository

Gopi Ramesh Sama


Earlier we use BIRT 4.5.0 for our development.  At that time we used to install BIRT plug-in on the eclipse using Zipped P2 repository zip file found in the BIRT 4.5.0 all downloads page.
Now we thought of upgrading the BIRT  to 4.6.0 or 4.67.0 but we are not able to see the Zipped P2 repository zip file link in all downloads pages for both versions.

I want to use org.eclipse.birt.feature.group, org.eclipse.birt.chart.cshelp.feature.group, org.eclipse.birt.cshelp.feature.group, org.eclipse.birt.doc.feature.group, 
org.eclipse.birt.source.feature.group, org.eclipse.birt.example.feature.group features in the BIRT on LINUX OS.

As Zipped P2 repository zip file not found as a alter native i have took the BIRT SDK zip and tried to install using the headless mode as shown below:

/private/temp/eclipse/eclipse -nosplash -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -repository file:///private/temp/birt -tag AddBIRT -destination /private/temp/eclipse -installIUs org.eclipse.birt.feature.group,org.eclipse.birt.chart.cshelp.feature.group,org.eclipse.birt.cshelp.feature.group,org.eclipse.birt.doc.feature.group,org.eclipse.birt.source.feature.group,org.eclipse.birt.example.feature.group

then it failed with below error:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app 4 0 2018-02-09 03:53:59.116
!MESSAGE The installable unit org.eclipse.birt.feature.group has not been found.

Can you please let me know what could be the reason for the issue and what is the solution for the same?
Also let me know that why Zipped P2 repository is not available for BIRT 4.6.0 and 4.7.0 versions.  Is there any replacement zip available for the same??
