Re: [equinox-dev] Question regarding class loader and getPackages()

Yes, please ask this on the osgi-dev mailing list or open an OSGi specification bug at https://www.osgi.org/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi.

I would not expect you to get Package objects for any packages for which a class is not defined. In most cases I don't think the VM class loaders do that (boot, extension, application etc.).

Re: [equinox-dev] Question regarding class loader and getPackages()

2008/6/2 BJ Hargrave <hargrave@xxxxxxxxxx>:
Does it matter which bundles the packages come from? From the client of the classloader, I would have thought this should be transparent, i.e. that it returns all packages that are visible through this classloader. From the javadoc for java.lang.ClassLoader.getPackages(): "Returns all of the Packages defined by this class loader and its ancestors". In an OSGi environment, wouldn't it be natural to include classloaders from bundles depended on as well?

Anyway, is this a question better suited for osgi-dev instead of this list?
