|Re: [p2-dev] Can p2.inf alter greedy attributes for a bundle you depend on?|
You should be able to add a negative requirement to org.eclipse.ui.editors (or even org.eclipse.ui.ide) from the IU of your plugin. This needs to be done by adding a p2.inf to one of your feature or plugin.
The following p2.inf should work (though I have not tested it).
requires.0.namespace = org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu
requires.0.name = org.eclipse.ui.ide
requires.0.min = 0
requires.0.max = 0
I’ve got a PDE build, with p2.gathering=true, of an RCP app that uses some Mylyn bundles. There’s a bundle (org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui.manifest) that has an optional dependency on org.eclipse.ui.editors (via MANIFEST.MF saying “org.eclipse.ui.editors;resolution:=optional”).
I need my RCP NOT to take that optional dependency (ultimately it gets us org.eclipse.ui.ide and contributions to the File menu like Open File…!).
I cannot change the mylyn bundle’s MANIFEST.MF to add x-greedy=false… so what is my solution?
Can I actually put a p2.inf (next to my rcp .product file) that instructs p2 NOT to grab the optional dependencies that /mylyn/ is requesting?
