Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Strange dependency of EMF Edit UI


No, this definitely isn't a good thing.  We must tolerate and even support 3.x so we must build and test against that.  If we don't do that, we've basically made this decision for a large fraction (majority) of the release train which I don't feel is appropriate.  The platform team has made it clear that 4.x must be compatible with 3.x so anything in EMF we discover (or downstream clients discover) doesn't work with 4.x will be something the e4 team needs to address.   We need to change this as soon as possible... 

Hopefully we'll be able to upgrade our builds so that the build is done and tested against 3.x and then retested against 4.x, but that's a longer term goal..

The dependency versions for EMF are determined at build time based on the target it is built against. Since we built EMF 2.8 M2 against Eclipse 4.2 (given that the Juno train is being based on 4.x), the dependency versions are based on 4.2... We could switch back to building against 3.x but then we'd have less confidence that things work properly in 4.x...

while switching the EMF version we use from 2.7 to 2.8 I noticed a strange dependency within org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui: the EMF 2.8 version has a plugin dependency to org.eclipse.ui.workbench[3.102.0,4.0.0).

The real problem appears when we try to build against the Eclipse 3.8 milestones update site for M2: there is only org.eclipse.ui.workbench in version 3.8.0 available which causes an unresolved plugin error. The Eclipse 4.2 milestones update site for M2 contains two versions of org.eclipse.ui.workbench (versions 3.8.0 and 3.102.0).

Any thoughts? It appears at least strange to me. What is the purpose behind?
