Re: [cdt-dev] Distribution of custom patches.


So I am trying to get a feature patch setup and this is what I need to do:

All the information below is for CDT 8.1.2

There is a bug in the org.eclipse.managedbuilder.core plugin that I need to patch.
This plugin is part of the org.eclipse.cdt.platform-feature.

I have an eclipse project with the org.eclipse.cdt.platform-feature and all of the included plugins including org.eclipse.managedbuilder.core.

I created a feature patch project

Name                     = Patch
Feature ID            = org.eclipse.cdt.platform
Feature Version =

Included plugins are:

Org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core (0.0.0)
This plugin was mirrored just like all the other ones from the 8.1.2 repo is git. I have put my code change into this version of the plugin.

Now, when I export this feature, and try and update an eclipse install I get this error:

"Patch" is not applicable to the current configuration and will not be installed.

I am not really sure what I am doing wrong.

We use Feature Patches ( to distribute certain modified CDT plugins as part of our product.

(I think we do end up having the entire CDT on our update site, but that's just because we couldn't find a way of stopping our update site build process from pulling in all dependencies - only our customized plugins come from our own build though, the rest is stock versions mirrored from
