[equinox-dev] Equinox doesn't declare a Provide-Capability header for osgi.ee

Hi @all,

 

I was just wondering why Equinox exports org.osgi.framework in version 1.7 which indicates OSGi R5 support but does not provide any capability header for execution environments as described in the core specification (chapter 8.2). Since I’m using Equinox in conjunction with an implementation of the Repository Service I would need such a header.  This results from my requirements of my resources, because each Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment will be transformed to a requirement like

 

Require-Capability:

osgi.ee;filter:="(&(osgi.ee=JavaSE)(version=1.6))"

 

However, although Equinox is compatible with this execution environment the resolver process will fail because nobody provides this capability explicitly.

 

It would be nice if somebody can give a statement on this.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Cheers Christian
