Subject Re: [jira] Created: (DERBY-153) Bad Eclipse plugin version specification
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2005 02:23:07 GMT

The Derby Core plug-in for Eclipse used to work just fine in all the 
Eclipse 3.x verisons of recent times (Eclipse 3.1M4). But
with the latest Eclipse 3.1M5a release, using the Derby build number as 
a part of the version information in the Derby Core
plug-in's plugin.xml creates issues while loading. To fix this I suggest 
we change the version inside plugin.xml  to show only
the MAJOR.Minor.interim.point of the Derby build.

For example:
The old way of (124830) will become

I have changed the org.apache.derbyBuild.eclipse.DerbyEclipsePlugin.java 
file to reflect the above. Please find attached
the diff file. 

If everybody agrees to this, can  this patch be applied (main and 10.0 
codelines) to close the defect 153. We will also have to
refresh the plug-ins, already available at the Apache Derby download 
site, with the above change.

Comments/Suggestions, please feel free to send them to the list.
