Re: [equinox-dev] system bundle package exports

The profile is selected based on the value of java.specification.version.  I would not recommend changing the profile in org.eclipse.osgi to export an additional package from the VM.  Instead you should create a framework fragment (see section 3.15 of the OSGi specification).  A framework fragment bundle (or extension bundle) can be used to export additional packages from the VM.  For example, if you need to export the "sun.print" package you could create a fragment bundle with the following bundle manifest.

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Bundle-ManifestVersion: 2
Bundle-Name: Sun Print packages
Bundle-SymbolicName: my.framework.fragment
Fragment-Host: system.bundle
Export-Package: sun.print

The fragment bundle would not actually contain any java code it would just be a jar with a single /META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file used to add a new export to the system bundle.

You could also use the osgi.java.profile property to point the framework to your own profile.  Search for osgi.java.profile in Eclipse help for more information..

[equinox-dev] system bundle package exports


I am new to equinox, and I'd like to port a utility I am currently building for
signing and publishing bundles on the platform.
I need to export some extra packages from the system bundle.
However, when I add package export to the 'J2SE-1.5.profile' file, they do not
appear to be exported inside the platform (they do not appear in the console
when I type 'packages 0'). How can I make them available ?

Moreover, I have not found where the '*.profile' file to be used is selected.
Is it done according to the jvm version ?

thank for the information
