In our RC3 version of the Ganymede update
site, we'll have more options for what to install. This is mostly to separate
some of the 'optional' features. (This has changed, some, with
P2, so to make them "visible",
I've added them to stie.xml file).
and XML can be installed without JDT!, so am hoping some of you can test
those configurations ... and, test them _this week_ before the RC3 site
is ready (since by then, little time left to fix anything).
Right now, with our webtools/tempTestUpdates
you'd have to install EMF and GEF ahead of time, along with Eclipse Platform,
In the final ganymede site, you can,
for example, install only the Eclipse Platform, and then select XML, and
get a minimal install.
teams to test things in these reduced installs to make sure there are no
"hidden" dependancies that do not normally cause problems, but
which will cause problems in these reduced installs. Such as ... check
the preference pages ... and see if internet cache page works :)
Note: some of the "optional"
features don't act as optional as they should ... but that'd be a larger
change and not sure it is worth fixing at this point. For example, if you
pick Java EE developer tools, you will automatically get the Web Page Editor.
But, JPA, I think, was defined correctly such that if you install Java
Persistence API Tools, then you will not automatically get the EclipseLink
Support, without selecting it.
