Re: [wtp-dev] WTP integration in the IAM project proposal

I have just realized ... unless I am mistaken ... that you may be assuming or planning that our WTP 3.0 (designed for Eclipse 3.4) will also work with Eclilpse 3.3. Is that right? Or, do you just want your code to work with both. I hope it's the latter, since our 3.0 code will _not_ work with Eclipse 3.3.

I am probably misunderstanding, but thought I should clear that up, if it is not clear.

Also, this mailing list is primarily for developers developing WTP, for some of these items, seems like you could open bugzillas, and/or ask on newsgroups. As you can see, most developers don't mind too much and we try to be helpful ... just thought that would be another thing I try to make clearer.

Thanks Konstantin,

I tried that approach on wtp 2.x (latest version from WTP or Europa update sites) and the adapter manager is returning null.

So I used this instead:

        Object configObject = def.createConfigObject( javaFacetVersion, mavenProject.getProject().getName() );
        if ( configObject instanceof IDataModel )
            // This works in WTP 2.0
            return (IDataModel) configObject;
            // This is the compatibility layer for WTP 3.0
            return (IDataModel) Platform.getAdapterManager().loadAdapter( configObject, IDataModel.class.getName() );

Which works fine for WTP 2.x, but I'm not sure if this is the intended pattern.

Is there any online resource where I can learn a bit more about this API and its evolution?

You should use Platform's adapter manager to "cast" the config object to IDataModel rather than casting it directly...

Object config = def.createConfigObject( javaFacetVersion, mavenProject.getProject().getName() );
IDataModel model = (IDataModel) Platform.getAdapterManager().loadAdapter( config, IDataModel.class );

When this code evolved for 3.0, backwards compatibility layer was added to help existing users, but the backwards compatibility layer is bypassed by casting directly rather than adapting.

Let me know if you have further questions on this.

After the solution of,
our users report a new problem:

org.eclipse.jst.common.project.facet.core.JavaFacetInstallConfig cannot be
cast to

This is caused by:

IProjectFacet javaFacet = ProjectFacetsManager.getProjectFacet( ""
IProjectFacetVersion javaFacetVersion = javaFacet.getVersion( "5.0" );
Build buildModel = mavenProject.getModel().getBuild();
for ( IActionDefinition def : javaFacetVersion.getActionDefinitions(
Action.Type.INSTALL ) )
  IDataModel model =
    (IDataModel) def.createConfigObject( javaFacetVersion,
mavenProject.getProject().getName() );
  // ^^ The above line causes the exception ^^
    makeRelative( mavenProject, buildModel.getSourceDirectory() ) );
    makeRelative( mavenProject, buildModel.getOutputDirectory() ) );
  facetActions.add( new Action( Action.Type.INSTALL, javaFacetVersion, null
) );

Is this an API change? If it is not, what's the right form of adding the
java (or any other) nature using the 3.0 API? (We also need to
programatically add any other nature, so if there's an online reference,
that would be great).

Although I replied privately (I don't know why I'm not receiving mail from
the list), just wanted to copy here the link to the bug report:
