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

Improving PDE is a laudable goal, but why are we discussing this in the first place? All this has been automated, the tool is called "oomph". If the JDT setups don't succeed in creating an error free workspace, then the setups need fixing. That's all.

Am I missing anything?

Hi,

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


Cheers,

    I'm working on a code mining bug, i want a add a test case for the bug
    i'm trying to fix first. When i try to open org.eclipse.jdt.text.tests
    i get the following test plugin dependency errors
    Missing:
    org.eclipse.text.tests
    org.eclipse.jface.text.tests
    org.eclipse.core.filebuffers.tests
    org.eclipse.jdt.ui.tests
    org.eclipse.test.performance

    I have only checked out the JDT UI repo and imported the project i
    need (org.eclipse.jdt.ui). is there way to install this missing test
    dependencies? How can i proceed ?

    Best regards,
    Gayan.
