eclipse-ecj OSGI requires
Last modified: 2009-03-12 03:31:07 EDT
Description of problem:
To be able to enable osgideps script in eclipse.spec, ecj sub-package need some changes. The problem is that this package symlink to jdt core jar and that jar requires follow OSGI bundles:
osgi(org.eclipse.core.resources) >= 3.3.0
osgi(org.eclipse.core.runtime) >= 3.3.0
osgi(org.eclipse.core.filesystem) >= 1.0.0
osgi(org.eclipse.text) >= 3.1.0
osgi(org.eclipse.team.core) >= 3.1.0
All these bundles are provided by the rcp sub-package but I'm not sure that gcj guys will such dependencies.
Yeah, if we try to honour the real OSGi dependencies of jdt.core then we'll have to have eclipse-ecj be on top of eclipse-rcp. java-gcj-compat requiring that is a non-starter. I think this makes the need for a separate ecj package more pressing.
Yes, a separate ecj package seem to be the clean way to fix this.
A separate ecj package is now in rawhide and will be in the F-11 beta.
