Re: [equinox-dev] Spec Interpretation

Title: Spec Interpretation
If Bundle-ManifestVersion is not 2, i.e., it is a bundle for an R3 or earlier framework, then it can return null. Symbolic name is required for R4 or greater bundles, which implies that Bundle-ManifestVersion of 2 is also required for them. Neither existed prior to R4.

I have a quick question on the OSGi 4.1 specification.

In the specification, section and section 3.5.2 both say that the Bundle-SymbolicName header is required. But the documentation on the org.osgi.framework.Bundle class says that getSymbolicName() may return a null if no symbolic name is set.

Under what circumstances could getSymbolicName() ever return null if the header is required? Is this perhaps to support old versions of the spec where the Bundle-SymbolicName was not manditory?
