Hi,

is there a way to define which project streams are compatible with product versions.

Background: We use Xtext to provide some DSLs which are part of our Product. Everytime we have changes in the DSLs we provide a new Product version.

Each stream of our project is pinned to a specific version of the Product in order to ensure the DSL compatibility.

Is there a way to configure the relationship from the Project Stream to the Product version?

It would be great if the installer just provides project streams which are compatible with the chosen Product version.

Thanks for your answer!

Kind regards
Oliver

I wonder if a different approach wouldn't work okay... I.e., focus on
defining your project stream so that it can work with the Platform
Product, which is basically an Eclipse IDE with nothing specific
installed. Then your project definition itself can ensure that it
spells out all the specific things it wants installed into a bare bones
IDE. At least with your Xtext example, that should work quite well
because the latest Xtext can install into Neon, Mars, or other older
versions of the IDE...

That's a great idea... thanks, Ed.
