Description wtmann 2011-12-12 09:11:14 UTC
When trying to install the Portalpack 3.0.5 beta (and the 3.0.4 stable) into Netbeans 7.1 you get the following error:

Some plugins require plugin org.netbeans.libs.commons_logging to be installed.
The plugin org.netbeans.libs.commons_logging is requested in version 1.3.1.

The following plugin is affected:       Generic Portlets 

It seems that Netbeans 7.1 no longer provides the org.netbeans.libs.commons_logging but now uses org.apache.commons.logging instead.

> Same problem with installing Checkstyle from

Wrong component. See:

The root problem is that the portalpack module was built against an older release and needs to be updated to request org.apache.commons.logging. However this should only be a warning, because ide.kit/module-auto-deps.xml defines a transformation for this; it seems Plugin Manager is failing to honor module auto dependencies?
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2012-01-25 15:00:49 UTC
SQE now fixed by building against 7.1, but problem likely remains for other plugins. Any updates?
Comment 4 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2012-02-20 11:56:21 UTC
What is the plan for this issue?
Comment 5 Jiri Rechtacek 2012-02-20 17:39:36 UTC
It's planned to be fixed in NB7.2 Beta.

Comment 8 Jiri Rechtacek 2012-04-10 13:35:44 UTC
Please, please review a api change in core.startup. It allows to use automatic dependencies in Autoupdate Services. Thanks
Comment 9 Jiri Rechtacek 2012-04-12 11:01:13 UTC
If there are no objection I'm going to integrate the patch tomorrow. Thanks
Comment 10 Jesse Glick 2012-04-12 23:52:01 UTC
It seems OK to me, although the API change is not strictly necessary - getDefault is not doing anything particularly tricky.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201204140400* on (upload may still be in progress)
