Re: [p2-dev] OSGi spec vs P2

- Initial provisioning is used to initialize an OSGi framework with an install agent. You are free to use an initial provisioning implementation to initialize a framework with the p2 agent.
- Deployment admin has a few limitations that the Eclipse community simply could not live with. One being the inability to share bundles between deployment packages.
- Bundle repositories are not an official specification from OSGi at this time. There is a proposed spec that has been out for a while. But p2 is extensible and you able to extend p2 to connect to a repository of your choice. I think some investigation had been done by the community to connect with an OBR repository. I'm not sure what the status of that effort is.

[p2-dev] OSGi spec vs P2




I am confused. Eclipse is built on OSGi. OSGi provides specifications for
initial provisioning, deployment admin and bundle repositories.  I see none of
these specifications supported or used in P2. Why is that?
