Class PluginVersionIdentifier


  • @Deprecated
    public final class PluginVersionIdentifier
    extends Object
    Deprecated.
    clients should use Version instead

    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.

        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.

        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.
