[equinox-dev] Fw: [Bug 126517] New source
lookup is broken
Should we put this on the list of things to propose in the next version
of the OSGi spec? deprecate getLocation() (and the use of the term
location) and replace with getInstallKey() or some such? This always
crops up and confuses people.

'location' is used to hold the poorly named OSGi concept of bundle location
(see Bundle#getLocation). This value is assigned by the caller to
The location string can be anything, it does not have to be a well formed
string or file path string. Therefore we cannot merge the two. The
definition I can come up with for the true meaning of bundle location would
"install key". It is a key assigned by the installer (not
the framework) at
install time. Update uses keys starting with "update@"
so they can easily tell
what bundles they manage.
