Re: [equinox-dev] what does equinox cache ?


The framework does cache manifest entries.  Webstart will replace bundle jars when new ones are available but does not use an OSGi APIs to tell the framework that the bundle has been updated.  This can cause old entries of your manifest to be used with new content.  It sounds like you may have run into bug 152835.  See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=152825.
