Subject version compatibility plugin?
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2008 15:46:36 GMT
I attempted to create a version compatibility plugin such that plugins 
with dependencies on 2.1 artifacts could attempt to be installed in a 
2.2-SNAPSHOT server image (mapping 2.1 car artifacts to 2.2-SNAPSHOT car 
artifacts).  However, thus far I'm not having any success.

The plugin is fairly simple.  Just a bunch of entries for artifact 
aliases and no other content:


I also verified that after installing the compatibility plugin that the 
entries are added to the file in var/config:


Yet, even with these entries, I still get essentially the same error 
attempting to install samples created for 2.1 in a 2.2-SNAPSHOT server 
as I had without the artifact-alias entries.  I showed the jasper 
entries above because that is the missing dependency when I attempt to 
install the Tomcat JSP example plugin created for 2.1 on 2.2-SNAPSHOT 
(see error below).  I had similar results on a 2.1.1 server when I 
attempted to use a another compatibility plugin mapping 2.1 cars to 
2.1.1.  Am I missing something obvious?
