Subject: Re: [eclipse-dev] Eclipse Extension Point Schema Definition Change from Eclipse 3.4 to 3.5
I recently noticed that the Extension Point Schema Editor introduced a change in the schema definition for extension points.
It changed the element from
- element/annotation/appinfo to element/annotation/appInfo
- attribute/annotation/appinfo to attribute/annotation/appInfo
(i.e. the 'i' in appinfo changed to 'I' in appInfo)
I am wondering whether this might cause problems for users of a pre 3.5 Eclipse IDE when using exsd's from a 3.5 Eclipse IDE.If I understand what you're asking, Eclipse never aims to be forward compatible. In reality, this means you can't take something like Eclipse 3.4 and point it to a Eclipse 3.5 target. Eclipse aims to be backwards compatible. Eclipse 3.5 should be able to deal with both of those formats.A better forum for this discussion would be on the Eclipse PDE forums (or newsgroups)Cheers,
