Hello,
I am migrating a huge code base from Eclipse 3.6 to Eclipse 4.4.
it seems that the class
org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor.LocationManager
has been removed from the org.eclipse.osgi bundle.

This was a public API and I can't find any documentation on "4.4 Plug-in Migration Guide" in the "Platform Plug-in Developer Guide" saying why this was removed and what is the replacement.

Can any one tell my why ? and what are the altenatives ?
I have read in this post (https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/mv/msg/638676/1233191/#msg_1233191 ) that it is replaced by org.eclipse.osgi.internal.location.EquinoxLocations which is not public !!.

Any information would be great.

SeB.

How were you using this package (org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor)? It is not API for other bundles to use. It is exported with the friends directive:

org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor;x-friends:="org.eclipse.core.runtime",

So it really should not be used as API. You should be using the Location services that are registered with the OSGi Service registry to get the various org.eclipse.osgi.service.datalocation.Location service objects.

Ok fair enough, what about using the org.eclipse.core.runtime.Platform.getXXXXLocation() method, they are 'shortcuts' to the OSGI Location services. This seems more straight forward ?

org.eclipse.core.runtime.Platform is fine to use. Some history on that class. It is a sort of legacy class itself form Eclipse 2.0, but it is not going away for the foreseeable future.
