[pdt-dev] Re: pdt-extras.map

Plugins and features referenced in the *source* map file will only be fetched / compiled / packaged if they're included in a feature being built. So, to have them available when building and packaging tests, add them to your test feature(s).

Or, would you prefer to include them as precompiled binaries? If so, I think it's time to move PDT to the Athena build system, so you can more easily manage your dependencies.

(You may recall ages ago I was asked if deps you be set in a properties file rather than exclusively selected by regular _expression_ from the list of shared deps. Athena supports that, and therefore adding new binary reqs is trivial: you just list the URLs and they'll be downloaded and will be available for use when building or testing. Works with both runtime zips and update site zips. With Athena, you tell the system what URLs to include, and it generates Ant variables for those URLs/files dynamically; all you need to do is check the resulting build.cfg file to see how to reference them in your buildExtra.xml or testExtra.xml files in order to have them be unpacked appropriately.)

Hi Nick,

I have a question regarding the modeling packaging system. Last week I
was working on refactoring Unit tests into a more appropriate (and
runnable by Eclipse builder) format.
New tests depend on org.apache.commons.lang and
org.eclipse.dltk.core.tests plug-ins. I've added entries for these
plug-ins into pdt-extras.map, but it seems like
it doesn't have any influence on the build process: these plug-ins
cannot be found (see my latest build log:

I'll appreciate if you shed some light on this matter.

Thanks in advance!
