Hello,

Following discussions about Xalan, Xerces libraries and Riena's problems
with package versioning, I have the same kind of problem in Eclipse OFMP
regarding the org.aopalliance bundle provided by Eclipse.

One of OFMP external dependencies requires
Import-Package: org.aopalliance.aop; version="1.0.0",
org.aopalliance.intercept; version="1.0.0"

But the org.aopalliance provided by Eclipse does not specify versions of
exported packages:
org.aopalliance/MANIFEST/MANIFEST.MF
(...)
Export-Package: org.aopalliance.aop, org.aopalliance.intercept
Bundle-Version: 1.0.0

instead of

Export-Package: org.aopalliance.aop; version="1.0.0",
org.aopalliance.intercept; version="1.0.0"

As reminder OSGi R4 specs specify that no version on exported or imported
packages defaults to 0.0.0 version instead of the "Bundle-Version" meta-tag
version

All these issues come from projects slowly moving to the OSGI best practice
of using "Import-Package" meta-tag instead of "Require-Bundle", which is a
good thing.
I agree with Jeff's point that it should be an Orbit-wide effort/policy to
specify imported/exported packages versions.

Should I file a bug for this to the Eclipse runtime project or should we
move org.aopalliance bundle to Orbit and fix it there ?

Thanks

Frederic

I'm not sure what the Eclipse runtime project bug would be. Is that
where the third party bundle is now?
If so, then yes.
And .. you might open a second one saying they should move it to Orbit
where most third party bundles go. :)
