|[cross-project-issues-dev] Pseudo-singleton for Guava in RC3|
HiI'm not sure if the following is an RC3 regression or an improvement; it's certainly surprising.
Up until RC2 multiple Guava's could accumulate in the plugins directory.While incrementally building another RC3 installation from ZIPs to observe the plugins directory, I saw
Installation of Platform, EMF, GEF - no com.google.guava Installation of MWE 2.6.0 - com.google.guava 10.0 (Bug 436420 raised) Installation of Xtend from M2T/Xpand RC1 - no change Installation of Xtext 2.6.0 - com.google.guava 10.0 is removed - com.google.guava 15.0 is added - com.google.guava.source 15.0 is added .... Installation of Papyrus 1.0.0 RC1 - com.google.guava 15.0 is removed - com.google.guava.source 15.0 remains - com.google.guava 12.0 is addedThe removals above are new to RC3 and are perhaps beneficially enforcing a pseudo-singleton.
Was this really intended? Is it related to: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=436418 in which the Plugin registry no longer has dependents. Regards Ed Willink
