Re: [equinox-dev] Exporting the entire bundle?

The only difference in Equinox is that export="*" is not supported.  That is, you have to list all of the packages you want to export in the Provide-Package header.

This is very similar to the Eclipse package prefixes notion but more explicit.  Note that a tool could provide export=* style support but under the covers compute the set of packages in the plugin and update the manifest.  This is what the plugin converter does.

In Eclipse, there is a way to export the entire library using:

  <library name="xyz.jar" export="*"/>

There seems to be no direct way of expressing the same using the new
'ProvidePackage' header. I am curious why 'RequireBundle' was added to aid
Eclipse porting for exporting a library was not.
