|[eclipse-dev] New Target Platform Preference|
In today's i-build (4/15), there will be a new preference available for you when you work against target platforms. In the past, PDE would do magic under the covers and analyze your target platform and see if it could find a configuration file (like a platform.xml) and then build a target platform based on that configuration. This magic has caused some pain when p2 was dropped in 3.4M6 for plug-in developers so we opted to include a preference to tune this behavior based on people's expectations. So you now have the flexibility to instruct PDE to attempt to look for these configuration files while building a target platform or revert to the old approach of just scanning the target location's directory for plug-ins on disk.
See these bugs for more information:
I did a write up about this topic here:
Thanks for using PDE.
