Re: [p2-dev] p2 categories and filters

Thanks Pascal. From the defects, it is not clear this is going to be addressed in any release, is that correct? Is this is a good time to start a discussion and maybe implement  applying specified filters on category IUs too?

Hi Nalini,

No filtering is applied on categories.  This is a known issue:

I am trying to filter out certain requirements using filters from category IUs, but the UI(install and pde) seem to ignore this. For example, installing test should filter out foo.win32 on a linux platform, but I am not seeing that happen.

<unit id='test' version='1.0.0.T20100823_1234' singleton='false'>

     <properties size='2'>

       <property name='' value='test'/>

       <property name='org.eclipse.equinox.p2.type.category' value='true'/>


          <requires size='79'>

       <required namespace='org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu' name='foo.win32' range='0.0.0' optional='true'>






I am probably missing something, are filters not supported for the category IUs? If this is a defect, I can open a bug report and probably attach a patch too.
