Tycho cannot resolve fragment dependency on other fragment

Tags: , , , ,

I want to create an extension for org.eclipse.swt as a fragment. I have created a bundle swt.extension with the following MANIFEST.MF:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Bundle-ManifestVersion: 2
Bundle-Name: Extension
Bundle-SymbolicName: swt.extension
Bundle-Version: 1.0.0.qualifier
Fragment-Host: org.eclipse.swt;bundle-version="3.102.0"
Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment: JavaSE-1.7

Also, I have created an interface which extends an interface from SWT:

public interface IExtendedStyleTextContent extends org.eclipse.swt.custom.StyledTextContent {

When I build my project with tycho (mvn clean install) the following error occurs:

1. ERROR in C:<path>tycho-fragment-to-fragment-dependencyswt.extensionsrcorgexampletycho_exampleIExtendedStyleTextContent.java (at line 3)

public interface IExtendedStyleTextContent extends org.eclipse.swt.custom.StyledTextContent {


org.eclipse cannot be resolved to a type

It seems that tycho resolves only org.eclipse.swt jar. This is a host bundle and it contains no classes. The actual implementation is in org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86_64 fragment bundle. And it looks like this bundle is not on classpath when tycho-compiler-plugin compiles the project.

Is this a bug of Tycho? Are their any workarounds?

I have put all sources on GitHub: https://github.com/orionll/tycho-fragment-to-fragment-dependency

I use maven 3.1.0


So, a workaround for this issue was found in mailing lists: http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/tycho-user/msg03277.html

To solve the issue one should add the following sections to POM and build.properties:



extra.. = platform:/fragment/org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86_64

I have also updated the GitHub repository
