Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Juno M2 aggregation -- will it be the worst milestone ever?
> Could you please

I might late today or tomorrow, but
I am hoping for a few quick fixes first, and that might greatly reduce
the "list of 20" I mentioned, since many may simply be due to
"ripple effects". There has been a couple of quick fixes already.
Or, you can discover issues yourself,
using the b3 aggregator editor, which is what I do. For example, after
opening the simrel.b3aggr file with b3 aggregation editor, select the main
validation set, and run "validate aggregation" menu choice. That
might say, for example, that org.eclipse.ocl.all.sdk couldn't be aggregated
due to some missing UML bundle (which might be missing due to some emf
dependency, as Ed mentioned).
Then, what I do, is go and disable the
org.eclipse.ocl.all.sdk feature (or, the repository it is in) ... and then
run "validate aggregation" again. Then maybe, for example, something
else can't aggregate due to some missing OCL piece, which is probably only
missing since I disabled it. So, I disable that feature or repository and
try validate again.
In practice, if I can disable a few
things, and then get a green run, I will disable them temporarily (and
check them into cvs disabled). But, when there are so many likely ripple
effects, I think it is best to leave alone, let errors occur, and hopefully
those notified of the errors, by the b3 aggregation build, can make a quick
fix (or, if they can't, disable their own contribution temporarily, and
let us all know, here on this list, what the outlook is, especially if
they have lots of clients in the Juno stack). In the mean time, I hope
you find using the b3 aggregator editor "locally" is useful to
check your repositories and aggregation.
Hope that helps,

Juno M2 aggregation -- will it be the worst

First greatest thanks to Kenn Hussey for making (or fixing) an "early"
contribution repository  for EMF core (or, "base", I think
they are now calling the platform-shared parts.
This allows Eclipse 4.2 M2 and EMF M2 to both be installed from repository
sites. (For full issues, and longer term improvements, you can follow bug
Now the problem is that the new version of EMF (and maybe Eclipse M2?),
apparently, breaks numerous other contributions, apparently due to
increased minor version numbers (combined with narrow ranges?).
To aggregate, at the moment, I would have to disable about 20 of the b3aggrcon
files in org.eclipse.juno.build.
