This came up recently and we discussed it within CPEG. Felix is incorrect in interpreting sun.io.* as a match for sun.io.SomeClass.

good to get a definitive answer, will the wildcard wording be improved in the 4.2 spec?
Not sure about that.

In other words, sun.io.* matches sub-packages of sun.io, but not sun.io itself. This will be corrected in a future version of Felix.

so to match "org.foo" as well as it's sub-packages you should use "org.foo,org.foo.*"?
(because if you use "org.foo*" then that could match against "org.foobar" as well...)

Yes, but I think only trailing package-level wildcards are supported, e.g., org.foo.*, not org.foo*...

ok, I think the 4.2 spec should really spell out what wildcards are supported and how they match

should I open a bug to track this, or do you want to follow this up with CPEG?

If you feel it is not clear in the spec, then definitely open a bug at OSGi or at least bring it up on osgi-dev.

ok, done... https://www.osgi.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47

I could be wrong.
