[Kepler] exported packages don't show up for import in other plug-ins [message #1442893] Sat, 11 October 2014 21:34 Go to next message

Hi there,

I have a number of plug-ins that use the same collection of jar files. To tidy things up and avoid dependency cycles, I've created another plug-in 'myproject.resources', which will contain the libraries to be shared with my plug-ins.

But when I try to import the packages for another plug-in, those packages that I intend to share do not appear in the list.

I feel that I tried everything in the plug-in 'myproject.resources' to make the packages available but this is not working. As for now,

In the plug-in 'myproject.resources' :
. I created a folder 'resources/jacop' where I put the jacop-4.0.0.jar
. I added the jar to the classpath
. I exported its packages

in the receiving plug-in:
. I added the plug-in 'myproject.resources' in the dependencies ('required plug-ins')
. none of the org.jacop.* packages appear in the list of possible imports.

What am I missing?

Thank you in advance.

to double check: when you say "I added the jar to the classpath" did you use the "Runtime" tab of the PDE editor?
Resulting in a Bundle-ClassPath entry in MANIFEST.MF?

Yes, that's what I mean. I'm not sure what happened then; I feel like I tried all combinations under the sun. I'll try to reproduce the error. (it's still not working but I'm working around it for the time being.)
