Re: [equinox-dev] Question about Bundle-ActivationPolicy: lazy and Activators

Thanks Neil.

So to summaries: without the "lazy" flag my activator is only started
if I do this explicit, i.e., it is not started without my code. So to
ensure the Activator runs, the flag is needed. (Unless I would start
the bundles somewhere in my code).

Best regards, Lars
