Re: [cdt-dev] New CDT -> Launchbar dependency in 9.0m6

Ok but the debugger plugins also depend on launchbar.core.  They are in their own feature and I don't believe Martin pulls them in anyway. However, they shouldn't force launchbar.ui to be installed; Qt and Arduino plugins should, but not the DSF-GDB plugins.

The new build plug-ins should be in a separate feature. Everything I'm building, i.e. Qt and Arduino for Neon, needs the launch bar or you can't launch on remote targets. There is no other way to set the target.

Please notice that launchbar.core and launchbar.ui are packaged as a single feature. This means that you always get launchbar.ui, whether you want it or not.

I think installation of the zip will require the simrel repo, as you mention, like other CDT dependencies, but that should be it.

In you case, you can just add the dependency to you target file.

I don't believe we announce new dependencies in any official way usually.  But I guess new dependencies in fundamental CDT plugins don't happen very often either.  I think the launchbar is one of those rare cases.

Hi CDT Gang,


We noticed that since CDT 9.0m6 , there is a new dependency on the LaunchBar which broke our builds [1] since our target platform wasn’t prepared to pull in the LaunchBar:


        à 1.0.0
         à org.eclipse.launchbar.core 2.0.0


This rises some questions:

1.       Is this dependency actually necessary? I thought that Launchbar was supposed to be optional.

2.       UI: can you confirm that launchbar UI will remain optional for CDT in 9.x ?

3.       Dependency: doesn’t include launchbar.core, so how are “stand-alone users” supposed to install CDT now ?

o   Simrel apparently pulls it form , can this be included in future Milestone Announcements ?

4.       Namespace: Has the “org.eclipse.launchbar” namespace been agreed on with simrel ?


To be clear, we appreciate all the usability work going into the CDT recently. But unfortunately the Launchbar

conflicts with our product approach for maintaining remote connections, so it’s really important for us

that the Launchbar UI remains optional for the CDT.


Looking forward to your input !
