The closest thing is the dropins support in p2, but that is not a good comparison since felix fileinstall is a small single bundle. Âp2 dropins support is just a part of the whole p2 "engine" and requires a fair bit of the p2 "engine" to function.
Yeah, that's too heavy for my needs.
I would be curious to know what exceptions you are seeing with felix.fileinstall. ÂPerhaps it indicates an equinox framework bug we should fix. ÂPlease open a bug against Equinox->Framework if you think it could be. ÂI would like to make sure the felix.fileinstall works on Equinox.
This the thing. I'm not even sure it's a bug, or simply something in my env that is causing it.
Here is the logged exception:
org.osgi.framework.BundleException: State change in progress for bundle "file:/home/rotty/apache-tomcat-7.0.23-trunk/repositories/osgi/data/framework/lib/web-extender-spi.jar" by thread "fileinstall-/home/rotty/apache-tomcat-7.0.23-trunk/repositories/osgi/data/framework/lib".
Caused by: org.eclipse.osgi.framework.internal.core.AbstractBundle$BundleStatusException

It seems that the package resolver thread is reacting to the new bundle while the fileinstall thread is still deploying it. I'm not sure who's at fault; fileinstall or equinox (of something else).
