Hello all,

First, thank you for the good work on the PDE !

Next, I have some troubles with product export since I migrated from 3.4.2
to 3.5 :

- I export the product, multiple platforms, and it builds everything ! This
is perfect... but apparently it does not export implicit "re-exported"
dependencies. For example, if my plugin depends on org.eclipse.compare and
my feature mentions it, the generated exported product has a
org.eclipse.compare plugin but does not contain the org.eclipse.compare.core
plugin.

I would have expected the PDE to export it as the org.eclipse.compare plugin
explicitly declares its core plugin as a reexported dependency.

Since it implicit dependencies are recursive, I need to add the unresolved
dependencies, to re-export the product, run it, check the logs to see new
dependencies from the plugins I added to my feature and do this again and
again until I got a proper config...

So here are a few questions :
- Am I doing it the right way ?
- Isn't there a "checker" that would validate a config before running it ?
- I'm a bit lost in internal eclipse dependencies, like p2 (which i need now
in 3.5), or ecf... I can't find any feature which I can depend on and would
resolve this dependencies for me... isn't there any ?


Thank you very much... I know that after setting this up for 3.5 I won't
need to do it as long as I stay in this release.

Christophe
