Re: [equinox-dev] Deprecated Import-Service & Export-Service


Hi

Equinox code does not use Export-Service/Import-Service (maybe your thinking of Export-Package/Import-Package headers).  These headers have been replaced by the use of Declarative Services specification which uses xml to specify service dependancies.  In OSGi R3 these headers are not interpreted by the framework at all.  They are only used by management servers to help with deploying bundles which depend on services.

[equinox-dev] Deprecated Import-Service & Export-Service





Hi,

I'm a just a curious newbie to OSGI. While reading the R4 Core spec, items
3.2.1.19 & 3.2.1.22 says that the manifest headers Import-Service &
Export-Service have been deprecated. Why were they deprecated ? The equinox code
still uses both headers.

Regards,

Gavin
