Re: [equinox-dev] Changes to the equinox.supplement bundle

I am little confused. If osgi.core does not need osgi, then why not make 
it a seperate project? Then osgi can depend upon osgi.core. Same for 
supplement.

What is so special about osgi.core the is must be a sub folder of osgi?

Re: [equinox-dev] Changes to the equinox.supplement bundle







I'm not sure on the directory naming yet.  At first I wanted to make the 
folder names the same as the symbolic name of the split up bundles.  But 
this could lead to some really long paths in our project when partitioning 
the code to build a "core" framework.  By core I mean a framework that 
only has the essentials to be considered an OSGi R4 framework.  For 
example, if we created a project (org.eclipse.osgi.core) that contained 
just the core framework and the minimal bits it needed to run.  This would 
include some of the classes from supplement, but not all.  This could lead 
to a structure that looked like this ... 

org.eclipse.osgi/ 
        .project 
        .classpath 
        /META-INF/MANIFEST.MF 
        org.eclipse.osgi.core/ 
                .project 
                .classpath 
                /META-INF/MANIFEST.MF 
                src/ 
                org.eclipse.equinox.suppliment/ 
                        .project 
                        .classpath 
                        META-INF/MANIFEST.MF 
                        src-core/ 
                        src-extra/ 

The top root "org.eclipse.osgi" project would contain the following 
sub-directories on the classpath: 

org.eclipse.osgi.core/src/ 
org.eclipse.osgi.core/org.eclipse.eqiunox.suppliment/src-core/ 
org.eclipse.osgi.core/org.eclipse.eqiunox.suppliment/src-extra/ 

The "org.eclipse.osgi.core" project would contain the following 
sub-directories on the classpath: 

src/ 
org.eclipse.eqiunox.suppliment/src-core/ 

The "org.eclipse.equinox.suppliment" project would contain the following 
sub-directories on the classpath: 

src-core/ 
src-extra/ 

In the end the source folder names can be long and may give a better 
indication of what they container, but it will look ugly in the package 
explorer view of the top-level org.eclipse.osgi project.  Thought?

Re: [equinox-dev] Changes to the equinox.supplement bundle









Yes, this would be a very interesting route to explore.  It may actually 
prove to be a clearer partitioning of the source.  Currently I have to 
admit that I can never determine which source folder something should be 
in.  Note that under this model we might also reconsider the naming of 
"supplement". No bright ideas are springing to mind but something that 
indicates that "these are the extra bits particular to Equinox" seems on 
track. 

Just to clarify, are you suggesting that the name of the folder be 
"supplement" or "org.eclipse.equinox.supplement"?  If the latter, should 
we be renaming the other folders that we setup this way (e.g., 
org.eclipse.equinox.console, ...)?

We need a way to share the code that is in the org.eclipse.osgi bundle 
with the code used to build the supplement bundle. 

One way we can do this is to move the org.eclipse.equinox.registry project 
in CVS to the org.eclipse.osgi project.  This could look something like 
this 

org.eclipse.osgi/ 
       .project 
       .classpath 
       console/src 
       osgi/src 
       supplement 
               /src 
               .project 
               .classpath 

In the org.eclipse.osgi project we would treat the 
org.eclipse.equinox.supplement/src directory as classpath entry just like 
the other source folders (e.g. console/src, osgi/src etc).  But the 
org.eclipse.osgi/org.eclipse.equinox.supplement/ directory itself could 
also be checked out individually as a bundle project to get just the 
supplemental classes for building the standalone 
org.eclipse.equinox.supplemental bundle. 

We may be able to use this approach to build the different parts of the 
framework separately incases where someone wants the Equinox Framework but 
not the rest of the bits (console, supplemental classes, eclipse adaptor 
etc.).  But we still have the flexiblity to build all of the code together 
from the top-level org.eclipse.osgi project. 

This way we do not have to duplicate the code in two different directories 
in CVS and keep them in sync.

[equinox-dev] Changes to the equinox.supplement bundle










I have just released changes to the org.eclipse.equinox.supplement bundle
to HEAD. The added classes are required as part of the investigation into
getting the Equinox registry to run on another framework.

I have also updated all of the class comments so it says which revision it
is based on. Hopefully this will help us keep sync'd up with the code that
is in the org.eclipse.osgi bundle.
