|Re: [equinox-dev] Equinox doesn't declare a Provide-Capability header for osgi.ee|
Neil is correct, the framework has to compute the osgi.ee capability at runtime. I'm not sure how you are getting the Resource to represent the system bundle for your repository. I suspect you are parsing the bundle manifest that the org.eclipse.osgi jar just happens to include as an implementation detail. This is an implementation detail of Equinox. The specification does not require that framework implementation jars have a real bundle manifest.
No matter how you are generation the Resource that represents the system bundle, you likely are going to need a supplement resource that provides capabilities for the environment you are provisioning to or you are going to have to augment the system bundle resource to include additional capabilities for the environment. This includes the osgi.ee capability but also includes other capabilities such as the system packages which are available from the VM and exported by the system bundle at runtime. These are similar to the osgi.ee capability since they are computed at runtime after the framework has determined the level of the VM it is running on.

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 Iâm using Equinox in conjunction with an implementation of the Repository Service I would need such a header. ÂThis results from my requirements of my resources, because each Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment will be transformed to a requirement like
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
