Hello to the forum members,

I am developing an Eclipse plugin. I am using Require-Bundle in order to declare dependency to a bundle from one of Eclipse projects. This bundle is not part of the basic Eclipse distribution.
Is there a way to state that in case this required bundle is not found in Eclipse installation, my plugin will not be loaded ? I see that in such case an exception of the type org.osgi.framework.BundleException is thrown.

Many thanks,

This is part of the OSGI spec. Unmet dependencies will prevent your bundle from starting. It already works this way.
