Re: [equinox-dev] Unable to create a platform agnostic target

I opened a bug for this issue as it's breaking people's workflows:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=231799

PDE introduced a new preference to control how the target platform is built. By default, this preference is set to true and will build your target platform based on your targets configuration (via the platform.xml in <3.4, >=3.4 is the bundles.info).

I've been having an internal battle to just turn this preference off by default instead of the current logic detailed in that bug due to delta pack issues.

The p2/PDE team will have to come on a convergence on what is best. cc yourself on the bug and stay tuned

Cheers,

[equinox-dev] Unable to create a platform agnostic target




In Eclipse 3.3, after I installed the RCP delta-pack, all installed
plug-ins would be visible on the "Plug-ins" tab under "Preferences" ->
"Plug-in Development" -> "Target Platform", including those not
designated for the current os/ws/arch. In Eclipse 3.4, this list is
filtered. The same seems to be true for the
PluginModelManager.getActiveModels().

I just wonder if this difference is deliberate and if so, what methods I
should use in order to get "all installed" plug-ins, not just the
filtered ones.

The consequence at present is that when Buckminster attempts to set-up a
platform agnostic workspace and is unable to find the filtered plug-ins
in the target platform, it instead downloads them from the update site
and imports them into the workspace. It works, but the approach taken in
3.3 with the delta-pack installed was a lot faster.

Thomas Hallgren
