Features without ElementManifest and receivers

Apr 29, 2008 at 11:34 AM
When building my SharePoint solution using WSPBuilder I got the following error/warning message:

"No ElementManifest and Feature receiver was found in feature '**feature path**'"

WSPBuilder is right, because my solution includes a feature for which I didn't define an ElementManifest nor a feature receiver. This feature contains only ActivationDependency elements and is used for triggering the activation of other features, just like Microsoft's own TeamCollab feature. As far as I know SharePoint doesn't require features to have either ElementManifests or Feature Receivers defined. So why does WSPBuilder output that warning?

No, I didn't find a solution. I think it's a bug in WSPBuilder and it should be fixed by the developers. And it's only a warning, so WSPBuilder still produces a working WSP file. Just ignore it for now.
