I had a look at the feature.xml specification under
Platform Plug-in Developer Guide > Reference > Other reference information > Feature manifest

At the description of the <import> element, I cannot see what is the behavior if the version attribute is specified but the match attribute is _not_ specified.

Is one of the four match attribute values (perfect, equivalent, compatible, greaterOrEqual) the default value? If yes, which one is the default value. If no, what is the behavior if the version attribute is specified and the match attribute is not specified?

Thank you in advance!

http://help.eclipse.org/helios/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/misc/feature_manifest.html shows that 'compatible' is the default:

<!ATTLIST import
plugin CDATA #IMPLIED
feature CDATA #IMPLIED
version CDATA #IMPLIED
match (perfect | equivalent | compatible | greaterOrEqual) "compatible"
patch (true | false) "false"
>

D'oh *self-facepalm*

I was so focused on the description of the attributes, that I did not come to the idea to find this information in the DTD.

Thank you!
