Re: [equinox-dev] Status of Equinox respect to OSGi R4

The OSGi framework in Equinox is used as the reference implementation of 
the OSGi Framework specification. The Metatype and Declarative Services 
implementations from Equinox are also used at the reference 
implementations in OSGi. I do not believe that any other part of Equinox 
is used as an OSGi reference implementation at this time.

The only optional feature of the framework specification that the Equinox 
OSGi framework does not implement is the bootclasspath extension feature 
which is impossible to implement in a VM implementation-neutral way.

Isn't it possible that such an answer could be misconstrued? Equinox 
does not implement every aspect of the R4 specification. Granted, 
Equinox implements a very large portion of it, but it seems more 
forthright to be clear about what it means to be "fully" compliant, 
which is what was asked.
