Auto start bundles programmaticly [message #1076536] Wed, 31 July 2013 14:52

I wish to be able to mark a bundle as auto-start programatically.

My bundle has a service which is to be enabled when a user ticks a box
in a preference page and to be disabled when it is unticked. I have some
code to register/unregister a service on a preference change in the
bundle activator and to start the service when the activator starts.
However if the bundle is not started, then the activator code will not run.

I am looking to also modify the bundle start behaviour when the
preference changes. It looks like I need to generate a touchpoint
instruction to change this value. However I've not been able to put all
the pieces together to work out how to execute this instruction. Most
examples I have found are related to installing a new bundle, not
modifying an existing one.

Can someone point me towards how I would go about this?

Is there a better way to do this? I am looking to avoid adding the
autostart to my .product configuration.
