Eclipse 3.4


Re-base to Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede).


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 10
  • Last updated: 2008-06-25
  • Percentage of completion: 10%

Detailed Description

Benefit to Fedora

The latest bells and whistles :)


See 452875

  • Upgrade/introduce dependencies (see below)
  • use p2
    • update to generate p2 metadata
    • ensure our metadata is properly read by p2 if we're going to use the dropins

approach for additional plugins

    • ensure our arch-specific/arch-independent split still works
  • ensure we have all dependent packages updated and OSGi-ified a la Orbit


  • ensure secondary arches can still build and run

Test Plan

Automated upstream tests, daily usage, 3rd party plugin installation

User Experience

The user should see a seamless upgrade from eclipse-*-3.3.2 to eclipse-*-3.4.0. Hopefully we'll be able to ensure that 3rd party plugins they've installed (into ~/.eclipse) will continue to work.


  • sat4j (I have an SRPM I will submit for review ASAP)
  • ECF (To be called eclipse-ecf and has other dependencies of its own). We'll at least need these ECF bundles:
    • org.eclipse.ecf.filetransfer_2.0.0.v20080611-1715.jar
    • org.eclipse.ecf.identity_2.0.0.v20080611-1715.jar
    • org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.ssl_1.0.0.v20080611-1715.jar
    • org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer_2.0.0.v20080611-1715.jar
    • org.eclipse.ecf.ssl_1.0.0.v20080611-1715.jar
    • org.eclipse.ecf_2.0.0.v20080611-1715.jar
  • OSGi-ifying: objectweb-asm (probably with a sub-package, objectweb-asm-eclipse or something)
    • get a mega-asm bundle from the multiple JARs we have in Fedora now
  • the rest of the dependencies from Eclipse 3.3 except Tomcat

Contingency Plan

Stick with Eclipse 3.3.2.


Release Notes

We may need a release note if we don't get user-installed plugins working.
