Hi Folks,

I've done a bit of googling but cant find any specific
reasons/justifications for this.

I'm trying to work out why org.eclipse.core.runtime.compatibility.registry
is deployed as a folder as opposed to a jar.

Some internal customers for a servletbridge-based product are asking me if
we can deploy this frgament as a jar. Is this possible or is there a reason
why it is unpacked to a folder?

Many thanks
_Paul

This fragment uses a classpath trick to replace some of the class files in
its host. That only work with unzipped bundles.

I'd say if the application needs the
org.eclipse.core.runtime.compatibility.registry fragment, then that fragment
has to be supplied as a folder. However, not all bundles need it, so if you
are dealing with a "closed" set of plugins, then you can test/update those
plugins to the point where they don't need compatibility fragment.

Sincerely,
Oleg Besedin
