I'm currently trying to get P2 working in our OSGI-based application. While Installing and Uninstalling seems to be working at the moment, I'm running into some problems with the update mechanism:
When I try to update a bundle A which exports a package that is imported by a second bundle B, the update operation can not be resolved.
It ends up with:
"'A' cannot be fully uninstalled because other installed software requires it.  The parts that are not required will be uninstalled."

The problem is of course very obvious: needed bundles cannot be uninstalled.
The question is: Do you have any ideas how I could update a bundle that is required by an other bundle?

best regards and thanks for your help in advance,

You would have to find the bundle or feature that explicitely install and requires it. For example in the following setup:
A -> B -> C

if updating C fails you would most likely have to update A.
