[p2-dev] p2 metadata and old Eclipse 2.x and 3.0 style plugins

Please see the thread below.  I don't remember having this discussion in
p2, but it seems perfectly reasonable that p2 would not understand the
temporary attributes we used in Eclipse 3.0 (i.e optional=true,
reexport=true).  This also made me question if the p2 publisher understood
2.x style plugins (that have no bundle manifest).  I am pretty sure the
answer is no to both.  Please confirm.

Tom

To be honest, I do not ever remember "optional=true" ... but found evidence
of it in bug 82855
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=82855
where some of the directive format/syntax was changed ... back in 3.1, in
2005!

It appeared for some cases they did want "warning" if version 2 was used
with old syntax, but I had a hard time
following all the different cases. So, you might read through that bug, and
see if it seems covered there, or
fell through the cracks.

As far as p2 publisher supporting only version 2 ... I suspect that was
intentional (since p2 came along after that, and guess the logic would be
if someone was going to "republish" some old manifests to p2 metadata, they
should update their manifest?) but I didn't search that bugzilla component,
and might have been a case that fell through the cracks?

(As a general rule, I lean towards opening bugs, even if might end up being
invalid or "working as designed").

Worse, the build is still failing ... I guess for some other reason now.
I'll be looking at it this evening.

Hi folks,

Sorry for the faild builds. Turns out that this error was triggered by a
bundle using the wrong bundle manifest version. PDE correctly handles
this. Thus, no error was visible in Eclipse. However, it looks like p2
only understands bundle manifests version 2.

There are very subtile difference. One uses "optional=true" on optional
package imports but p2 only understands "resolution:=optional" (which is
uses in version 2 of the bundle manifest). I wonder if this qualifies
for a bug report or if support was dropped (never implemented?)
intentionally.
