7.1. Target Platform ComponentsΒΆ

Below are listed the (non-Eclipse) components that can (if required) be materialized into your development environment’s target platform (tp/). Only the components and versions that your source project(s) depend on will actually be materialized.

A plugin dependency (declared in either a plugin’s MANIFEST.MF or in a feature’s feature.xml) will materialize the dependent component. A package import (declared in a plugin’s MANIFEST.MF) will not result in anything being materialized. If you use package imports, then the supplying plugin must be referenced somewhere (typically in a feature).

Whenever a plugin depends on a bundle or a package, the manifest should always declare a dependency on a specific version, or version range. Features should not normally specify any version dependency (i.e. they should depend on version 0.0.0).

Usually, you specify a version range something like [2.1.0,2.2.0) or [2.1.0,3.0.0), where the [ indicates inclusive, and the ) indicates exclusive. Otherwise a fresh materialize will get the latest available version, which can change at any time, and which your code might not even compile against.

Note

This list of available components is not yet complete. It is in the process of being updated.

If the bundle or version you want is not available, please contact matthew.webber (at) diamond.ac.uk to have it added. Although you could just add the bundle .jar to your own plugin, it’s preferable that common bundles be provided once via the target platform, rather than everyone having their own copy.
