RE: [equinox-dev] Autostarting Bundles

For now, the config.ini is probably your best option.

In Eclipse 3.5 Galileo, you will be able to use P2 touchpoint advice
file (p2.inf) to indicated your bundle should be "markStarted" as well
as set its "startLevel".

Subject: [equinox-dev] Autostarting Bundles

I have a small server-side equinox application running.  I would like
to autostart a couple of other bundles automatically.  The
Eclipse-AutoStart is deprecated, and the Bundle-ActivationPolicy only
accepts 'lazy' as a value.

Is there an accepted way to auto start bundles without having the
explicitly in the config.ini?

We have used a solution in the past that require the plugins wishing
autostart to register an extension to a service that will start them
on their behalf.  But it seems like there must be a different way.

Any thoughts?
