During configuration, all packages contributing content are scanned to
determine if there are any that were built using your package. If the
config tool detects that some package, say P, was built with 1.x.y of
your package and 2.a.b is contributing to the configuration, then the
configuration step will fail with an error indicating the package P must
be rebuilt with version 2.a.b.

A package's compatibility key can be obtained either as part of a build
( http://rtsc.eclipse.org/cdoc-tip/index.html#xdc/bld/PackageC ontents.html#version)
or a program's configuration script
During the execution of a build script the only compatibility key
available is that of the package being built (the one contained in the
package.xdc file). During configuration, the compatibility key of any
loaded package is available (this allows a package to check the versions
of any prerequisite packages and handle incompatibilities as necessary).
