Re: [cdt-dev] CDT ignores IWorkspace.AVOID_UPDATE


I only have vague recollection of debugging this sort of issue, like
It might help to create a bugzilla and post some stack traces to illustrate what is going on.
If I remember correctly, calling setProjectDescription starts a workspace runnable with a workspace scheduling-rule/lock (by default) and it fires an APPLIED event at the end which triggers a indexing job. But I don’t know where the resource event fits in your case.

I'm still trying to find a way to make to postpone the indexer untill "it is safe" during cdt project creation.

When doing so I noticed that ICProjectDescriptionListener events are triggered when running a thread started with the IWorkspace.AVOID_UPDATE flag

As to the documentation I would assume the ICProjectDescriptionListener events to be non-existing in regards to changes done by the AVOID_UPDATE invoked thread.

Am I understanding this correctly? Should I create a bugzilla?

Best regards


int org.eclipse.core.resources.IWorkspace.AVOID_UPDATE : 1 [0x1]
