Re: [equinox-dev] Why do we need systembundle.mf?


Is it that you want to delete the file or rename it to manifest.mf?  Seems like the file is actually required as it has lots of exports etc.  If you delete it then the adaptor would have to supply all that info.  I think the model was that the systembundle.mf combined with the relevant adaptor.mfs gives the logical manifest.mf for the system bundle.  Having an actual manifest.mf for the system bundle might be confusing.

>I can't find a reason as why we still have systembundle.mf in the
framework.

It enables the OSGi framework to be started outside of Eclipse without the
user having to provide their own system bundle manifest, which is just one
less step in getting started.
