Description Jesse Glick 2003-01-16 01:26:06 UTC
Currently NbInstaller.refineDependencies hardcodes
an (ever-growing) list of dependency
transformations used to keep backwards
compatibility. But this is too much logic in the
core and makes it hard for modules to manage their
own lifecycles. Should be possible to declare
transformations in XML and add them to the system.

See proposed DTD. XML files would be looked for in
$dir/system/ModuleAutoDeps/*.xml for $dir in
$nbhome and $nbuser (i.e. system filesystem before
any modules have been enabled).

Comment 3 _ pkuzel 2003-01-17 10:43:17 UTC
A naming note: trigger => dependency, result => implies. 
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2003-01-17 14:47:35 UTC
OK, that naming change sounds reasonable enough.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2003-01-21 03:10:24 UTC
Changed to:

dependency => trigger-dependency
results => implies

Comment 7 Jesse Glick 2003-01-27 22:02:25 UTC
