Mickael, One of the goals of WTP is to remain as backward compatible as possible.
I think this should be open to discussion now. I do not think all WTP projects are same anymore and for some WTP projects competitiveness is/should be a priority over compatibility.
However, there have been several times in the past when a pluginwants to make use of a new Java or Platform method, which is a valid usecase, and thus allowed. Or, expressed in a more concrete example: For Neon, Dali moved all of their BREE levels to Java 8 and made useof the Java 8 constructs in their code. That's perfectly fine. But if someone were to press for all of WTP to move up to Java 8 just because theplatform is at Java 8, that's not fine- we try to stay as backwards-compatible as possible. Please let me know if you have any other questions/comments/concerns.

Sent by: wtp-dev-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx Hi all,I'd like to contribute the official integation of the smart importer into the main JSDT UI bundle, since the API is part of org.eclipse.ui.ide 3.12that is part of Platform 4.6.Is it OK to have such dependency to bleeding edge Platform in next JSDT, or do you want to keep backward compatibility so I should rather make it anoptional bundle?
