Re: [cdt-dev] The old binary projects question again

I presume you are taking about turning on the option which makes PDE use classpath containers for dependent plugins. If so, then I've had my CDT project configured this way for a week or 2 now and everything still works fine with a few observations, first, this is not 'on' by default so you will just have to make sure everyone turns it on in the preferences. The second thing I've noticed is that it seems that PDE will update the plugin dependencies more often, causing the fragment plugins to be included in the .project which mean we all need to have every fragment checkout so that it builds for every platform that
its checkout on.

Hey gang,

I was just doing some work in another eclipse based project and noticed that they do not use binary projects. I couldn't find anything that I couldn't do in the libraries that I couldn't do with binary projects, especially search and debugging (including breakpoints!).

I've been looking into automation of building for the update site (as an Eclipse plug-in) and noticed that it would be nice if I didn't have to load in the external plugins to build.

I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts about removing the dependency on these binary projects and taking full advantage of the PDE to generate build dependencies for us.
