Where did the ServiceReference and Activator class go?

While reading the API documentation here (http://help.eclipse.org/mars/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/guide/p2_api_overview.htm?cp=2_0_20_0) I tried to find the class ServiceReference and Activator to import the package that contains the classes. After looking at the org.eclipse.equinox.p2.* set of packages here (http://help.eclipse.org/mars/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/equinox/p2/core/package-summary.html?cp=2_1_0_85) I could not find ServiceReference and Activator.

Where did the ServiceReference and Activator class go?

ServiceReference is an OSGi class (org.osgi.framework). Activator is the bundle's activator and it's mostly used in the example code to fetch the BundleContext, which holds the OSGi framework's context for that particular bundle. You can also get a BundleContext for the bundle that contains the current class with:
BundleContext context = FrameworkUtil.getBundle(getClass()).getBundleContext();
