Re: [equinox-dev] BundleContext and getName

I saw the discussion regarding the extra method in BundleContext to
get a bundle from its name.

We had this discussion in the past year in the OSGi and decided -not- to
extend the BundleContext interface to keep it as simple as possible.
There was quite a bit discussion about this.

One thing that I proposed, which would more or less fit with the
existing standard, is to register the bundle objects in the registry
with properties for name, id, module, version, etc. This will allow
you search for bundles with an OSGi filter. This may be a cleaner
method than adding methods to BundleContext

Kind regards,
