Install RTC Extension: Missing requirement


Christine Makasy (73722) | asked Oct 17 '17, 3:46 a.m.

Hello all,


now I was trying  a different example and I want to install it into Eclipse, but I run into the following error: 

Software being installed: RestrictClosingToOwnerFeature 1.0.0.201710161532 (com.ibm.js.team.workitem.extension.advisor.statechange.service.feature.feature.group 1.0.0.201710161532)
  Missing requirement: RestrictClosingToOwnerFeature 1.0.0.201710161532 (com.ibm.js.team.workitem.extension.advisor.statechange.service.feature.feature.group 1.0.0.201710161532) requires 'com.ibm.team.repository.service 1.3.4000' but it could not be found

But com.ibm.team.repository.service is there:

 <requires>
      <import plugin="org.eclipse.core.runtime"/>
      <import plugin="com.ibm.team.process.common" version="1.3.4000" match="greaterOrEqual"/>
      <import plugin="com.ibm.team.process.service" version="1.3.4000" match="greaterOrEqual"/>
      <import plugin="com.ibm.team.repository.common" version="1.4.4000" match="greaterOrEqual"/>
      <import plugin="com.ibm.team.repository.service" version="1.3.4000" match="greaterOrEqual"/>
      <import plugin="com.ibm.team.workitem.common" version="3.2.800" match="greaterOrEqual"/>
      <import plugin="com.ibm.team.workitem.service" version="3.1.1600" match="compatible"/>
   </requires>

What do I miss?

Many thanks, Christine

No, there service you requested is only marked as required in the feature.

It is not necessarily there and, in fact, the library not being available or a version mismatch could well be the reason why the error comes up.  Or any other deployment problem can cause this.

These days, I remove all the versions from the dependencies to be able to deploy on different versions without having to worry. In your case make sure that the versions you need are available.
