Discussion Topics

EclipseCon

  • Tom is doing a demo at EclipseCon and is doing an example with framework extensions and was wondering if he should use M5 or if he can use a p2-ized build. The thought is that it might just work. There is currently an open p2 bug for this.

p2 integration

  • we will probably need a rebuild (before the build is already done :-)
  • today's build should contain a p2-ized SDK
  • running off the bundles.info file and not the update.configurator discovery mechanism
  • can't just drop bundles into your plug-ins directory and have them installed
  • we will have a drop-ins folder where people can put bundles and have them discovered and installed
  • if people are replacing bundles, then they will have to update their bundles.info file
  • we can look at sorting the file by bundle id to make it easier

Security

  • discussions around security integration into p2
  • trust
  • where do we put the bundles when it graduates? Platform? RCP?
  • contain a UI component so prob Platform
  • discussion around who will be adopting the new support
  • Oleg is working with the CVS team

x-internal

  • at one point we had talked about having all bundles in the RCP being able to run in strict mode
  • Tom has found a case where a bundle outside the Platform has an extension which depends on an internal class
  • this doesn't work in strict mode
  • we need to re-visit how far up we want to enforce the right headers (friends, internal, etc)
  • we will add it to the discussion topics for the arch call tomorrow
