|[equinox-dev] Using the Configuration Admin Service?|
I've been doing some investigation in to how Eclipse and its various components get configured.
From what I've seen, this is done primarily through System properties and I'm looking at alternatives for a variety of reasons. (see bug 105851, but I can definitely add other concerns)
OSGi gives us the Configuration Admin Service and I'm wondering if using it might be a better approach for non-system bundle configuration information.
By this I guess I'm proposing that the Config Admin Service be integrated at a fairly low level in Eclipse and then used for all plugins/bundles that need configuration instead of System properties.
Once the Configuration Admin service is available I'm happy to do the work, but before I get started I'm curious as to whether people think this approach is reasonable.
