After some investigations around JBIDE-11726
(Create target platforms
for developer), we have arrived to an interesting result by having
that target platform should be much more stable (CI job only publish
them after validating they can successfully be resolved) and having make
progress about JBIDE-11689
;, by using "includeSource"
flag on target-platforms.
So if you want to be less surprised by dependencies-related issue, here
is a way to make your IDE use an equivalent target as the one used by
build, without loosing ability to view source:
1. Checkout the build/target-platform folder in your workspace
2. Open *multiple.target* using the target editor
3. Ckick on "*Set as Target"* on the upper-right corner
Then, PDE will rely on this target definition to resolve dependencies
(from Eclipse, Atlassian, SpringSource and other 3rd-party deps we have).
In order to resolve other JBoss Tools stuff, you may want to complete it
with entries from our development update-sites to resolve other modules
if you need, but please don't commit anything to this TP before opening
a ticket to the target-platform component.
Your feedback is welcome on JBIDE-11726.
