Trying to check API compatibility using the API tooling. Enabled own plugins for API builder and set a baseline from a previous release of Eclipse 3.2.2 ( 3.6.2 as development environment and as Target). Code uses an API method in core.runtime introduced in release after the Baseline all output set as error to ensure visible. This usage is not identified by the API tooling. Only identified by normal compiler error if Target platform is set to same as the Baseline. From reading the documentation, this is exactly the situation that API tooling should identify.

Also attempting to revert to not using the API Tooling ( reverted all .project to version prior to enabling API Tooling ) still gives error that Baseline is not set for workspace. Can API Tooling usage be undone.

The baseline should be the previous release (3.5) not 3.2.2. There shouldn't be a problem with using an API method from a later release as your target platform determines what dependencies you can have. API Tools checks that you are not using API illegally (accessing internals, @noextend, etc.) and that you are not modifying API in your projects without updating version numbers correctly.

Under the PDE Tools menu there is a menu option to remove API tools information from a project. Removing the nature from the .project or deleting the builder will turn off the builder for that project. The baseline error is set on the baselines preference page. Change that to ignore if you do not plan on using API Tools.
