Re: [mpc-dev] Auto-filter MPC based on Eclipse Package

Correct. You can see the value of this property if you go to Help->About Eclipse->Installation Details->Configuration and look for the 'eclipse.product' key.

If I were using "Eclipse for C/C++ developers", I am guessing would
get a different value than if I were using "Eclipse for Testers"?

The string sent to the server is the result of the call

This id is appended to the querystring of every request to the server.

@benjamin, when MPC is first started, what is the product code sent to
get the featured list? Is that product code an extermalized string that
can be customized by EPP? Nathan, can confirm but I think the backend
does look at the code.

@eric on the backend we have rules on what solutions we return. For
instance, we only return listings that have proper IUs setup so they can
actually be installed We also only return listings that are licensed oss
or from Foundation member companies.

Hi Ben,

This definitely paints a clearer picture.

To dig a little further, if the Eclipse Marketplace backend were to
handle that parameter and return some results, would it be to the full
set of solutions? I don't want anything to prevent users from seeing
all the solutions, but it would be nice if the solutions for mobile
and embedded devices were listed first.

I say this, since the user has chosen a specific package, presumably
he wants solutions for those roles. At least at first, then they can
look for other tools to fulfill their job role.

The MPC client actually sends the product id as part of the MPC
requestst to
the server (eg.&product=org.eclipse.epp.package.rcp.product).
This way the server can actually response with different features for a
particular product (or EPP package as they have their own product). As
as I know, the Eclipse Marketplace  currently  ignores the product

Hope that helps,

Hello all,

I'm working on a new EPP project for mobile devices, as described by

Ian and I were discussing how this package would operate and I have a
thought. Would it be possible for MPC to load with the filters
pre-selected based on the package? Perhaps some bit of data about the
package itself could be fed into MPC or read from the initial query to
know which filters to apply.
