The function in org.eclipse.equinox.registry
is not specified in an OSGi standard. That API has been in use in
Eclipse for many years but we have, as yet, not made any attempts to standardize
The bundle does *not* depende on the
org.eclipse.core.runtime bundle. It imports org.eclipse.core.runtime

There are many documents (books, help
entries, articles) around on how to use the Eclipse extension registry
mechanism. Perhaps the easiest thing is to look through the Eclipse

[equinox-dev] Equinox and Extension/Extension
I am fascinated about the plugin engine of Eclipse (Extension/Extension
Point). Digging in Equinox I found that now it is implemented in "org.eclipse.equinox.registry".
Clearly it's not standard OSGi and so this bundle depends from " org.eclipse.core.runtime".
is it correct? Where can i find a simple step-by-step example that shows
how to use this service? I can dig into various eclipse documentations/books
but I am searching something easy to test and try with equinox. Thank you
