Secondary IDs broken? [message #1817286] Wed, 20 November 2019 00:45 Go to next message

In all of the 2019 releases of Eclipse, perspective switching in my application has been broken because Views with the same secondary id are not being reused when the perspective changes - a new View is created for each perspective. This is different behavior than previous releases (Oxygen and earlier, not sure about Photon or the 2018 releases) - I believe the expected behavior is that if you define a secondary id for a View and reference the same secondary id in multiple perspectives, the same instance of that View should be reused in each perspective.

Singleton views (i.e. no secondary id and "allowMultiple" is false) are correctly being reused when the perspective changes.

Is this change in behavior expected, or is it a bug? It's a waste of memory and resources, and it is breaking a couple of my Views that expect to only have a single instance of a view with a unique secondary id.

Thanks
-Mark

This is a bug, secondary id should be respected. Please create a bug report on https://bugs.eclipse.org/.
