Re: [equinox-dev] EclipseStarter.searchFor() - expected JAR naming scheme


Can you open a bug against Equinox->Framework so we can continue the discussion and track the possible solution?  Please attach your patch there.  Thanks.

[equinox-dev] EclipseStarter.searchFor() - expected JAR naming        scheme

At present, EclipseStarter.searchFor() looks for JAR files given some
target name, which can be

o the entire file name
o the file's base name minus the ".jar" extension
o the prefix of a base name, followed by an underscore that
  introduces a version tuple

The third one is clever and convenient, but I found that it conflicts
with Maven's preferred JAR naming scheme. Maven separates the
artifactId from the version tuple by a dash or hyphen.

With the small change attached, we could use Maven-generated artifacts
named by their artifactId and have them properly discovered.
