I was looking through some code related to feature-based launching for RAP and found that IPDELauncherConstants.USEFATURES is marked as deprecated. The comment said that "As of 3.6 the feature-based self-hosting option is not supported". I though this was just added in 3.6, so what does this mean for the future?

Feature based launching is a new feature for 3.6 and is fully supported in the UI.

Feature based self-hosting is an old feature that is replaced with the new feature based launching support. It used a special workspace setup to replicate an update configurator startup based on features. This mode is deprecated because no one knew how to set it up and few people are developing with update configurator (p2's simple configurator has replaced it).

Thanks Curtis,

I found IPDELauncherConstants.USE_CUSTOM_FEATURES which is what I was looking for.
