This is definitely a tricky problem. A likely scenario is that they have installed some additional plug-in, and that plug-in has a constraint that is not compatible with constraints in the updates (The extra plugin requires version 1 of foo, and the update requires version 2). The problem is,

For the installation case, I can see two possibilities 1) opening the wizard again when an error is detected 2) don't let the user click the install button until the proper things have been selected. This means that the validation is done as the user selects and unselects things in the UI. The

John said: It would be nice if there as an unobtrusive way to let the user know though - such as a trim widget that gets an error overlay added. this is similar to the path I am exploring. To clarify - you'll never get told of an update if you don't have the pref on. The pref guides how often

Susan said: Are you suggesting that you'd rather see the update icon/red X without the popup in the second case? Interesting The popup is ok, as long as it's non-modal, appears at the bottom of the window, doesn't steal focus, and eventually disappears on its own if I ignore it. The

Hi team, ha~It seems my homework not enough, why I just miss Alex Blewitt's article at http://www.eclipsezone.org/eclipse/forums/t99762.html. OK, the thread seems not a question. The true question is that, since the main thread mode IApplications cannot running, Why AppCommans not report a error

The webpage is not up-to-date, here is what it should say: Whereas jar delta is based around the understanding of how a jar is shaped, full delta works on any kind of file independently of what they contain. - The processing steps to create the delta and reconstitute the final jars are in place.

There is already some work done in p2 but it will probably not get into p2 version 1.0. I will explain the reasons for that later. Full Delta optimization works similar as the Jar Delta Optimization except that the full delta algorithm used is a binary delta algorithm working on the byte

I have added some more detail on this to the wiki page. Both binary and class delta optimization have been implemented. There are optimizer applications available for creating these artifacts, and processors available for reassembling artifacts from deltas. Some pointers were added on the

Scott, thanks for the pointer and info. To implement the described use case (all clients in the lan need to pull something from the wan) I was thinking to something different (maybe simpler?) than mirroring. My first idea was a sort of cooperative download, that is each client ask its peers
