[eclipse-dev] Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment: JavaSE-1.8 and Eclipse/dropins

Hi all !

I have a wee question about the Eclipse Photon release and Eclipse/dropins.

We have a few features with plugins that worked fine with Eclipse/dropins up-until-Photon.

We create an eclipse folder in an installation folder with a feature and plugins and we create a .link in Eclipse/dropins that points to the installation folder.

This mechanism is no longer working in Eclipse Photon.

If I create a p2 repo. and install the feature and its plugins using Install New Software, then the plugin(s) work as expected.

I have found that removing the `` Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment: JavaSE-1.8 `` entry from the plugin(s) MANIFEST.MF resolves the problem.

We’ve found an interesting issue with the feature and plugins by running following the instructions here:
!MESSAGE Unable to satisfy dependency from to; (&(
But not sure what has changed in the Eclipse platform.
Would anyone know what changed? Happy to move with the times, but would like to know if this was intended and where it is documented.
Thanks in advance! As always, I appreciate all your awesome support over the years!
