Error while 'Install Extension to Design Studio'

Dear Experts,

When I try to load an SDK component from my local computer to the Design Studio, I got the following error message.

"Failed to discover all connectors.

RepositoryDiscoveryStrategy failed with an error

Failed to process repository contents

No repository found at ......"

My source file is in .zip format. And i am trying to install this .zip file.

I saw a similar problem in the forum and problem and the solution was "the bullet "Generate p2 repository" was unselected". But I couldn't even find this setting..

Can you please help?

Thank you in advance.

Ozan E.

    I am not sure if this will solve your issue, but here is the setting in Eclipse re: generate p2 - see screen shot below from File > Export :

    Hi Ozan,

    You cannot install the source zip file into Design Studio. You need to package it in an installable format(One which Design Studio understands). For this you need to complete the following steps.

    • configure the SDK extension plug-in
    • create a feature project (wrap the SDK extension),
    • create a category (add texts that represent the SDK extension in the Eclipse installation wizard),
    • create a deployable feature (wrap the SDK extension and its category into an installable format).

    You should refer to the sdk developer guide here. Refer step 3.3 Adding an SDK Extension to a Design Studio Installation for the above process

    The bullet "Generate p2 repository" will be available in step 3.3.4, Procedure step 3.

    Once completed you will have a .zip file exported, you need to use this to load the component into design studio.
