Description

The eclipse nebula compositetable dependency blocks the update of the taxeditor , since the taxeditor update mechanism expects an updated version of the jar.

This problems comes from the fact that we are using the p2 repository of the nebula project and since the compositetable is still in incubation, the repository is a snapshot one - http://www.eclipse.org/nebula/downloads.php.

This implies that for every build of the taxeditor the latest version of the compositetable jar will be pulled from the snapshot repository, which could potentially change on a daily basis, leading to the problem we have.

The solution would be to have a stable repository (p2 or maven) so that we can use a stable version of nebula widgets in building the editor and change only when we need to.

changed nebula p2 repository to the one which is archived but stable (retention period of 2 years starting Q32014) - r22022

The more long-term solution will be to have our own p2 repository with these plugins

sounds good as long as there are no licence problems involved

Good point. I don't see a mention of the license on the project site http://www.eclipse.org/nebula/downloads.php, but they are offering the entire repository as a zip download, so it seems like it can be redistributed.

Also, I have checked the fix when trying to update today using yesterdays version of the editor. The version of the compositetable is the one from the newly set repo and the updates run through without problems.

With the change to eclipse neon we have to check if the update still works because I have also used the latest release of the nebula widgets
