There is a setting in the equinox launcher to set the default autostart to
true.
Is there a matching setting which can be placed in the config.ini file?

I found osgi.bundles.defaultStartLevel,
but osgi.bundles.defaultAutoStart does not work.

Is this an osgi param, or does the equinox launcher do this on its own?

Erdal,

A known workaround is to have a bundle (which must be autostarted, of
course) listening to new RESOLVED bundle and automagically starting
them. See the code below (from the Toast project ;-)).

However, you may want to check if your problem couldn't be solved
autostarting only a very few strategic bundles (e.g.
org.eclipse.equinox.ds, even if PDE will now automatically set it to
autostart), and have dependencies automatically handle the starting of
other bundles....

Cheers,
Ben

Thanks for the hints! Of course osgi.bundles.defaultAutoStart would be
more convenient ;-)
