Eclipse - New Plug-in Project - Pure E4 ? [message #1726337] Fri, 11 March 2016 14:23 Go to next message

I am working on a pure E4 application (no compatibility layer code). When I create a new plug-in in Eclipse, the new plugin will have a dependency on org.eclipse.ui which is not in my target platform. Is there any way to have a pure E4 plug-in created? It is real annoying when the steps to creating a new plugin involves removing dependencies that Eclipse has added.

Thanks!
Doug

I think it is because the checked "Create an Activator" which is checked by default. And the created default Activator extends some base implementation in org.eclipse.ui

Personally I think we should not activate the creation of an Activator by default and also update the template to use an OSGi base class to avoid that.

Could you create a ticket for this?
