Hi all,

We have developed a RCP, which is a component of another product.
That's why the RCP version and the version of all it's plugins that we
developed shall be the same than the version of the other product.

It would be nice, if we could pass the version to the pdebuild via -D
property or something like that. The only way I found is to pass the
context qualifier, but not the whole version number.

Is there a way to set it from the build script and avoid to change all
manifest.mf and feature.xml files manually.

-Andreas

Hi Andreas

I have the same issue about the version numbering.
Did you find any solution for that?

Thanks for your answer,
Alain.

Hi Alain,

Unfortunately not.
It seems, that there is no better solution than to patch all files
(Manifest.mf and feature.xml) with the new version number.

Has anyone a better solution?

Hello,

I think a solution could be to use a template MANIFEST.MF files, and to generate the correct MANIFEST.MF from it according to this property in your build. for example in postFetch task (for example by using a <replace token="XXX_VERSION_XXX.jar" value="${version}" file="META-INF/MANIFEST.MF" />)
