Re: [wtp-dev] Problem related to org.eclipse.runtime.compatibility in M3 candidate build

Hi Konstantin,

I took a look, and the problem is that the wst.common.ui plugin has the following <require>:

  <import plugin="org.eclipse.core.runtime.compatibility" version="3.1.100" match="equivalent" />

Since the o.e.core.runtime.compatibility plugin has changed it's version to 3.2.0, this dependency breaks. The quickest solution is for us to either bump up the version to 3.2.0 or change the match to 'compatible'. As far as I can tell, is the only WTP plugin that depends on this plugin, so none of our other features should have this problem.

I agree we should remove the dependency entirely, but that could be dangerous since we have to declare M3 by Wednesday. I would suggest opening up one critical bug to get the feature fixed this week, and a second to investigate removing the dependency from plugin and feature in M4.

Subject: [wtp-dev] Problem related to org.eclipse.runtime.compatibility in        M3 candidate build

I doing some testing with the M3 candidate build and wanted to install some BEA plugins via an update site. I got the following message in the install update wizard. Does anyone know what's going on here?
WST Common UI (2.1.0.v200709192200-7C6EIbE9RvTVnoosrln7YgYagz-Z) requires plug-in "org.eclipse.core.runtime.compatibility (3.1.100)", or equivalent.
Does our distribution need to include some other platforms plugins that are currently not referenced? What would it take to eliminate this dependency, since it looks like the platform team is done supporting it?
This seems like a pretty critical issue to sort out prior to declaring M3 as it will be a serios blocker for adopters if no updates can be installed.
- Konstantin
