Hi everyone,

I have a plugin developed using Xtext 2.6.0, however when I create a "Update Site Project" and try to install the plugin in a new eclipse I got problems to get the correct version of Xtext. By default, when I install my plugin, Juno installs Xtext 2.3.1, Kepler installs Xtext 2.4.3, and so on. Of course, I get an error when I try to run my plugin in a different version of Xtext.

I know I could put all the related files of Xtext with my plugin (using the features). But, I'm thinking if it is possible to force my plugin to download the correct version from the update site of Xtext.

Another option that I know could be the user to add the update site of Xtext, but I don't want that the user does it.

How do you guys usually solve this issue?

Best regards,
Maicon

hi i dont get the point, a feature can have a required feature and include other features

maybe you should switch to feature.xml + catgeory.xml to build a p2 repo and throw the site.xml away

i dont know a way without

- you delivering all features
- the user providing a update site containing the right features.

eclipse cannot guess how to find stuff.


Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
