Discussion Topics

  • Switching to "full" 4.2 build soon. Entire Eclipse SDK test suite will be running on 4.2. We currently run a large subset but not all tests. For UI workbench tests that are testing workbench internals, they currently don't even compile in 4.x. We need to decide whether we:
    • Widen our test facade that handles different 3.x and 4.x implementations in a single stream
    • Fork the entire tests and have different tests in each stream.
