[jdt-dev] Recurring 'depedencies' questions (was Re: Writing Tests for JDT Text Tests)


This question are really really frequent and the answers are far from being trivial to grok. I am sure we lose a good share of potential contributors at this exact moment when they need to resolve the "there are errors everywhere" issue.
I think we really need a solution for it, that doesn't involve looking for documentation or asking on the mailing-list.
IMO, the issue lays in PDE failing at being helpful to users in such cases: users see the missing dependencies, but there is no quick-fix that help users to remediate them. I suggest addition of a "Search from know update-sites and add to target-platform" quick-fix: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=550078
