Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] handing of patches

That said, I believe that ECF's situation is still relatively exceptional in that it is now split between the platform and its own feature, and that ECF should not be delivered by patches and that the platform should just require ECF.

Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] handing of patches





p2 now supports feature patches, so a feature patch can be used to replace a plug-in in the base platform. However, we didn't get to our desired goal of spoofing up patches automatically if the user dropped in a new version of the bundle in dropins. Here is the bug report where you can follow progress on this:

[equinox-dev] [prov] handing of patches




With the recent changes/additions for patch handling, will p2 now allow
the update/patch of platform plugins (including, for example, ECF6)?

Reason I ask...ECF currently has to create separate builds (and ask
people to use different update sites) for ECF-on-eclipse 3.3-3.4M5, and
ECF-on-eclipse 3.4M6+ because of the p2 'patch problem'.  Just want to
know if this is still an issue (my expectation is yes this is still an
issue, but would like to be sure).

Thanks,

Scott
