Re: [equinox-dev] Building against specific EEs


eRCP XML bundles, also known as "microXML" are in the Eclipse embedded Rich Client Platform project (www.eclipse.org/ercp).
The two bundles provide full DOM Level 2, SAX 2.0 and JAXP 1.0 support in about 100k. Part of the reason for the small size is that the parser is non-validating.
You can check out the two projects from CVS or get pre-built bundles from an eRCP runtime.

Ok, I have a few ... I'm not familiar with the background, so I'm not sure if I need to know or not. :)

What are these?
Can the ones in Orbit work? Such as
javax.xml_1.3.4

What's exact match mean? You mean lower than 1.4 or Java 5 VMs?

According to what? And, are you saying never from the VM?

As mentioned in the Equinox call earlier this week, I am investigating the
EE situation with our bundles and how it relates to the build. Kim and I
discussed this today and we will move forward by:

- Kim ensuring that VMs for the appropriate profiles are available in the
build (in the process of aquiring Foundation 1.1)
- downloading the eRCP XML bundles and put them in a spot so PDE/Build
knows to take them into account when compiling
- running a test build with one of our "requires XML" bundles changed to
have the correct order for the EE

If everything is ok, then we will recommend that the order of EEs in the
bundle manifests be changed to reflect the true order.

Note that this will require people to have the XML APIs available in their
workspace if they are set up with exact match VMs. We will adjust the
project set files to load Xerces or the bundles from eRCP, accordingly.

Please direct question or comments to this list.

Thanks.
