[equinox-dev] [prov] improved uninstall
FYI: I have release changes to improve support for uninstall. Associated
metadata changes were committed by Pascal last week, so if you haven't
regenerated metadata in a while, I recommend doing that. These changes
themselves introduce no new metadata incompatibility. Here are a
Additional work on uninstall in support of bugzilla 191018 - Initial support
for uninstall. Includes fixes, though possibly not the final solutions,
for 191610 - Can't uninstall org.eclipse.osgi due to EquinoxBundlesState.composeNewState()
and 191612 - Once equinox.simpleconfigurator is uninstalled, bundles.txt
is no longer updated.
I have tested install and complete uninstall of an SDK. The result is relatively
clean, removing the config.ini file, the org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator
directory and its contents, and the eclipse .ini file. No attempt is yet
made to remove the launcher .exe file or and of the configuration subdirectories
left by executing the installed SDK.
The partial uninstall scenario - for example, installing an SDK then extending
it by, for example, installing CDT, then removing CDT does not currently
work. The dependency computation in the directory is going wrong and the
sdk bundles will be removed as well. I will look into this problem tomorrow.
Please let me know if you encounter any problems or have any questions.
