Hi All,

Here is what is happening to me...

I have an existing bundle hello-1.1.0 up and running in Virgo.
in its Export package manifest header the package is mentioned as com.test.hello;version="1.0.0";

I make a change in com.test.hello package and increase the version of bundle and package to 1.2.0 and deployed the new bundle hello-1.2.0 and version of package in that bundle manifest is com.test.hello;version="1.2.0"

One of my other bundle which was a consumer of com.test.hello has the Import package manifest header as
com.test.hello;version="[1.0.0,2.0.0)" the version range.

Will the consumer bundle automatically able to pickup the version 1.2.0 since I have mentioned the version range?

It was not happening to me.The consumer bundle was still referring to the package com.test.hello from hello-1.1.0 and not hello-1.2.0

I refreshed my consumer bundle once from virgo console and after which the package was getting reffered from hello-1.2.0.

How does this version range actually works.? Do I need to refresh my consumer bundles every time I deploy a new service bundles?

Any help on this is appreciated.

According to the OSGi spec ("Updating Bundles"):

The update process supports migration from one version of a bundle to a
newer version of the same bundle. The exports of an updated bundle must
be immediately available to the Framework. If none of the old exports are
used, then the old exports must be removed. Otherwise, all old exports must
remain available for existing bundles and future resolves until the
refreshPackages method is called or the Framework is restarted.

Refresh is therefore needed in order to have the wiring as you want it.
