Re: [equinox-dev] EventAdmin and topic legality

Line 187 in Event.java indicates that the token is the empty string. This 
implies that you have 2 (or more) adjacent slashes in the topic name: e.g. 

What leads you to believe the Equinox EventAdmin impl is more strict in 
the token grammar? The test for valid token is in 
or.osgi.service.event.Event which is from OSGi.

[equinox-dev] EventAdmin and topic legality

Good morning.
Forgive my posting if this is not the right forum to be asking these 
questions.  If so, redirection would be appreciated.
Iâm having a spot of trouble with the Equinox EventAdmin.  It seems like 
the Equinox EventAdmin will not accept a topic that contains certain 
tokens, producing:
Exception in thread "Thread-0" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: invalid 
        at org.osgi.service.event.Event.validateToken(Event.java:187)
        at org.osgi.service.event.Event.validateTopicName(Event.java:161)
        at org.osgi.service.event.Event.<init>(Event.java:46)
The core OSGi spec defines a token as one or more alphanumerics, 
underscores, or dashes (1.4.2 - General Syntax Definitions).  Based on my 
investigation, the Equinox implementation seems to have a more strict 
interpretation of what is a valid token.  Dashes seem to be completely 
disallowed.  Numbers and underscores can be present, but cannot be the 
first character in a token.  Overall this seems similar to Java variable 
naming rules, but I was curious whether my interpretation of the spec is 
incorrect or if there was a reason for the discrepancy.
Many thanks,
