[p2-dev] p2 tagged for the next integration build

Hi everyone,

I found a limitation to the file level locking we are using.  File level locking doesn't appear to 'lock' files between threads (on the same VM) when executing on a 1.5VM. However, it does 'lock' on a 1.6 VM. This isn't a regression since this never worked before, but it is something we should address for Eclipse 3.7. I filed bug [1] to discuss this.

[1] 339164: File level locking doesn't 'lock' the file between multiple threads in the same VM (Java 1.5)
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=339164

I also disabled the test cases that were testing this behavior and tagged for the next integration build.

The map file has been updated for the following Bug changes:
+ Bug 339164. File level locking doesn't 'lock' the file between multiple threads in the same VM (Java 1.5) (NEW)

The following projects have changed:
