Re: [equinox-dev] Two bundles contributing to one package?

John,

Perhaps you're looking for Fragment Bundles?  From the Core spec:

Fragments are bundles that are attached to a host bundle by the Framework.
Attaching is done as part of resolving: the Framework appends the relevant
definitions of the fragment bundles to the host's definitions before the host
is resolved. Fragments are therefore treated as part of the host; they must not
have their own class loader.

In your case, it seems that B would be a fragment of A.

Also, you might look at Require-Bundle and the case of a split
package, which is defined as "a package which does not have a single
provider, but the contents can come from different bundles."
