Re: [equinox-dev] Re: Embedding Equinox OSGi and EclipseStarter


This is an item that we (Equinox) would like to focus on for OSGi R5 along with Richard Hall (Apache Felix) and others.  In general there is a need to provide a standard way to hook into and add functionality to an existing Framework implementation.  If we could do this in a general and standard way then we can try to keep the core Framework impl small and only add additional functionality as needed in a standard way without "baking" it into the Framework implementation.

This would be a great area for standardization within a future OSGI spec. Standardization of how you embed, host, and interact with an OSGi framework etc. I think people are finding this more and more useful and will be then coming up against the same issues that have been talked about here a few times lately.

Wow, this is excellent documentation. Thank you.

Yes, that one, and perhaps the BundleWatcher interface. I'll try
implementing with these this afternoon and report back how I fare.
