Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.core.runtime
Class PluginVersionIdentifier

java.lang.Object
  extended by 
org.eclipse.core.runtime.PluginVersionIdentifier

Deprecated. clients should use Version instead

public final class PluginVersionIdentifier
extends Object

Version identifier for a plug-in. In its string representation, it consists of up to 4 tokens separated by a decimal point. The first 3 tokens are positive integer numbers, the last token is an uninterpreted string (no whitespace characters allowed). For example, the following are valid version identifiers (as strings):

  • 0.0.0
  • 1.0.127564
  • 3.7.2.build-127J
  • 1.9 (interpreted as 1.9.0)
  • 3 (interpreted as 3.0.0)

The version identifier can be decomposed into a major, minor, service level component and qualifier components. A difference in the major component is interpreted as an incompatible version change. A difference in the minor (and not the major) component is interpreted as a compatible version change. The service level component is interpreted as a cumulative and compatible service update of the minor version component. The qualifier is not interpreted, other than in version comparisons. The qualifiers are compared using lexicographical string comparison.

Version identifiers can be matched as perfectly equal, equivalent, compatible or greaterOrEqual.

This class can be used without OSGi running.

Clients may instantiate; not intended to be subclassed by clients.

service - service update component of the version identifier

PluginVersionIdentifier

public PluginVersionIdentifier(int major,
                               int minor,
                               int service,
                               
String qualifier)
Deprecated. 
Creates a plug-in version identifier from its components.

Parameters:
major - major component of the version identifier
minor - minor component of the version identifier
service - service update component of the version identifier
qualifier - qualifier component of the version identifier. Qualifier characters that are not a letter or a digit are replaced.

PluginVersionIdentifier

public PluginVersionIdentifier(
String versionId)
Deprecated. 
Creates a plug-in version identifier from the given string. The string representation consists of up to 4 tokens separated by decimal point. For example, the following are valid version identifiers (as strings):
  • 0.0.0
  • 1.0.127564
  • 3.7.2.build-127J
  • 1.9 (interpreted as 1.9.0)
  • 3 (interpreted as 3.0.0)

Parameters:
versionId - string representation of the version identifier. Qualifier characters that are not a letter or a digit are replaced.
Method Detail

validateVersion

public static 
IStatus validateVersion(
String version)
Deprecated. 
Validates the given string as a plug-in version identifier.

Parameters:
version - the string to validate
Returns:
a status object with code IStatus.OK if the given string is valid as a plug-in version identifier, otherwise a status object indicating what is wrong with the string
Since:
2.0

equals

public boolean equals(
Object object)
Deprecated. 
Compare version identifiers for equality. Identifiers are equal if all of their components are equal.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
object - an object to compare
Returns:
whether or not the two objects are equal

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Deprecated. 
Returns a hash code value for the object.

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
an integer which is a hash code value for this object.

getMajorComponent

public int getMajorComponent()
Deprecated. 
Returns the major (incompatible) component of this version identifier.

Returns:
the major version

getMinorComponent

public int getMinorComponent()
Deprecated. 
Returns the minor (compatible) component of this version identifier.

Returns:
the minor version

getServiceComponent

public int getServiceComponent()
Deprecated. 
Returns the service level component of this version identifier.

Returns:
the service level

getQualifierComponent

public 
String getQualifierComponent()
Deprecated. 
Returns the qualifier component of this version identifier.

Returns:
the qualifier

isGreaterOrEqualTo

public boolean isGreaterOrEqualTo(
PluginVersionIdentifier id)
Deprecated. 
Compares two version identifiers to see if this one is greater than or equal to the argument.

A version identifier is considered to be greater than or equal if its major component is greater than the argument major component, or the major components are equal and its minor component is greater than the argument minor component, or the major and minor components are equal and its service component is greater than the argument service component, or the major, minor and service components are equal and the qualifier component is greater than the argument qualifier component (using lexicographic string comparison), or all components are equal.

Parameters:
id - the other version identifier
Returns:
true is this version identifier is compatible with the given version identifier, and false otherwise
Since:
2.0

isCompatibleWith

public boolean isCompatibleWith(
PluginVersionIdentifier id)
Deprecated. 
Compares two version identifiers for compatibility.

A version identifier is considered to be compatible if its major component equals to the argument major component, and its minor component is greater than or equal to the argument minor component. If the minor components are equal, than the service level of the version identifier must be greater than or equal to the service level of the argument identifier. If the service levels are equal, the two version identifiers are considered to be equivalent if this qualifier is greater or equal to the qualifier of the argument (using lexicographic string comparison).

Parameters:
id - the other version identifier
Returns:
true is this version identifier is compatible with the given version identifier, and false otherwise

isEquivalentTo

public boolean isEquivalentTo(
PluginVersionIdentifier id)
Deprecated. 
Compares two version identifiers for equivalency.

Two version identifiers are considered to be equivalent if their major and minor component equal and are at least at the same service level as the argument. If the service levels are equal, the two version identifiers are considered to be equivalent if this qualifier is greater or equal to the qualifier of the argument (using lexicographic string comparison).

Parameters:
id - the other version identifier
Returns:
true is this version identifier is equivalent to the given version identifier, and false otherwise

isPerfect

public boolean isPerfect(
PluginVersionIdentifier id)
Deprecated. 
Compares two version identifiers for perfect equality.

Two version identifiers are considered to be perfectly equal if their major, minor, service and qualifier components are equal

Parameters:
id - the other version identifier
Returns:
true is this version identifier is perfectly equal to the given version identifier, and false otherwise
Since:
2.0

public boolean isGreaterThan(
PluginVersionIdentifier id)
Deprecated. 
Compares two version identifiers for order using multi-decimal comparison.

Parameters:
id - the other version identifier
Returns:
true is this version identifier is greater than the given version identifier, and false otherwise

toString

public 
String toString()
Deprecated. 
Returns the string representation of this version identifier. The result satisfies vi.equals(new PluginVersionIdentifier(vi.toString())).

Overrides:
toString in class Object
