|Re: [tycho-user] is it possible to override version requirements?|
Thanks Rolf! I didn’t know about this possibility and it seems like it matches my goals.
Reading the comments, 378794 is blocked by 372780, but fortunately, Christoph and Mickael are both involved https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=372780
The bug describes a workaround for the problem which I understand, but I’m not sure how to integrate a feature patch into my build for producing an Eclipse product.
I suppose after I make the feature patch and deploy it to a combined P2 repo (as described in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=378794#c14), I would add it to the product file and the target definition. Would dependency resolution respect the dependency version in my feature patch?
I’ll have to experiment with it, I suppose, but if anyone has used feature patches in an eclipse product that is being built for distribution, please let me know!
Thanks again, Rolf!
Isn't this where Feature patches are intended for? "A Feature Patch Project can contain plug-ins which replace existing plug-ins.", see https://www.vogella.com/tutorials/EclipsePatching/article.html or https://eclipsesource.com/blogs/2012/07/30/patching-your-own-eclipse-ide/
Though feature patches are not well supported by Tycho, see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=378794
