|RE: [wtp-dev] API to get a list of required facets given a "top"facetversion|
The following bugzilla entry is used to track this enhancement request: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=115892.
The problem is quiet difficult even if when making assumptions such as “take the highest version”. The OR constraints have to be dealt with. The list that you compute might not useable because of other facets currently selected and their constraints or the limitations of a runtime. In short, in order to make this work we would need a pretty sophisticated algorithm that’s capable of picking facets and versions while taking into account everything around it. Is it ok to change the version of face x that’s already selected to satisfy my constraint? Maybe it is; maybe it isn’t; maybe following another OR branch will make changing the version not necessary. It a lot of these situations, user feedback will have to be involved.
