Checking Proper Qualifier Convention


Author: Eike Stepper

The PDE uses the convention of specifying "qualifier" as the value of qualifier segment to indicate that it should be computed and substituted at build/publish/export time. All plug-ins and features should follow this convention. The version manager checks that this convention is respected for every plug-in and feature that it manages. A violation will be marked as an error. A quick fix for that error will insert ".qualifier" into the version specified in the MANIFEST.MF or feature.xml of the bundle. Alternatively, a quick fix to configure the project to ignore the error can be applied; it changes the Version Management Tool builder's arguments in the .project file.
