Simpleconfigurator is I believe completely
generic and could be used on other frameworks. It does have some optional
Equinox dependencies. Simpleconfigurator.manipulator requires frameworkadmin.
There was a time in the past when we had prototypes of frameworkadmin for
Felix and Knopplerfish but those were abandoned. The purpose was always
for the frameworkadmin API to remain generic, and then have separate implementations
per framework. There are some related bugs with a small amount of historical

simpleconfigurator on other frameworks?
Although simpleconfigurator has no 'p2'
in its namespace it is maintained by the p2 team. So this may be
a better question for p2-dev. That being said I know that simple
configurator has a goal to not depend on anything out side of the framework.
It is driven by the content of bundles.info. The bundles.info
file is managed by the rest of p2 (or anything else, simpleconfigurator
does not care who manages that file as long as it uses the the expected
syntax/format). Others from p2 may be able to point you to some efforts
from a while back to run p2 on other frameworks besides Equinox.

A couple of questions about simpleconfigurator (and simpleconfigurator
1) I see from a casual look at the dependencies that it only imports
org.osgi packages...does this mean that SC/SCM can run on other
frameworks (e.g. Felix)?
2) I assume that simple configurator depend upon FrameworkAdmin
service...is that right? What other services does it depend upon?
3) Is there a web/wiki page that has docs WRT these questions and/or
others? I found , but it's maybe a little dated (?)
