I'm curious to see if plans can utilize overlapping artifacts. For instance, say I have the following two plans:

<plan name="plan-a" version="1.0.0" scoped="false" atomic="false" ... >

    <artifact type="bundle" name="bundle-a" version="[1.0.0, 2.0.0)" />
    <artifact type="bundle" name="bundle-b" version="[1.0.0, 2.0.0)" />


<plan name="plan-b" version="1.0.0" scoped="false" atomic="false" ...>

    <artifact type="bundle" name="bundle-b" version="[1.0.0, 2.0.0)" />
    <artifact type="bundle" name="bundle-c" version="[1.0.0, 2.0.0)" />


My experience so far shows that Virgo will spit out some errors and fail to start plan-b due to the shared dep on bundle-b, even though both plans are unscoped and non-atomic. But it seems perfectly reasonable to me that two plans may share a dependency on some artifact.

Currently shared/overlapping artefacts are not supported. You may want to take a look at a similar topic.

You can create enhancement request for this feature. We might get this easily with the upcoming p2 integration. I'm not quite sure about the atomicity aspect though.

This feature will be supported after 3.0.0. Regions are to be used to implement the sub-systems spec, when this is done you will be able to share an artifact between unscoped plans.
