We are seeing inconsistent
behavior with regards to default enablement of the WTP update site.
Starting with a clean Eclipse Ganymede SR2 for Java EE Developers
install and a clean workspace, some users are seeing the WTP update
site enabled by default, while others are seeing it disabled by
default. Does anyone know what is controlling this and what could
account for the differences that we are seeing?
The reason that this is is
an issue for us is that we are shipping a product that is designed to
work with WTP Ganymede stream. It is, however, incompatible with Dali
2.1.x (from this year's release train). If a user takes a Ganymede
install, searches for updates and then installs everything, our product
may or may not be installable depending on whether the WTP update site
was turned on when they went looking for updates. The main Ganymede
update site only has 2.0.x versions of Dali (as expected), so updates
coming from there are ok. Since p2 UI is such a stellar example of
usability users are getting quite confused.
