Re: [tycho-user] Plug-in in several p2 update sites - How to consume the plug-in with the highest version number

I've integrated the obeo target-plattform generator in our build-process (I manage only the targetplatform file and generate the .target file headless) and works like charm.

Jeremie, thank you for the great tutorial.

Of course, I do this only temporarily, while getting things working ... once ready for production, I do specify whole, exact version.
But, I would not be surprised if even constructs such as version="[1.1.0,2.0.0)" would also work? (Though, admit, have not tried that -- and IMHO, not as good as specifying exact version).

One reason exact version is important, is that some times (especially for third party bundles from non-Eclipse sources) they may not follow the same "semantic rules" we do -- they might introduce an API change or breaking change in behavior just going from 1.1.0.<qualifier> to 1.3.0.<qualifier> --- hence for a truly reproducible build, need to specify whole exact version.

There are also functions in PDE target editor ("update") that will help with some of the tedious work.

Is this still true? I believe this documentation to be outdated.
Selecting content from a target definition deffinetly changes the build
Could anyone comment on this, please?
