[equinox-dev] New API on IApplicationContext

Implementers of org.eclipse.equinox.app.IApplicationContext interface please read on. Otherwise you can safely ignore this message.

First of all, what are you doing implementing an interface that has the @noimplement javadoc tag? It appears there are some cases where clients have found reasons to implement this interface. In most all cases I think it can be avoided by proper usage of the org.osgi.service.application.ApplicationDescriptor service to launch other applications instead of mocking up a context and calling an application implementation directly.

If you find you are mocking up an IApplicationContext then you will be affected by the changes in bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=304361 where new API was added to IApplicaitonContext. You will need to start implementing the new methods on this interface.

Let me know if you have any questions.
