Re: [equinox-dev] Re: How to use launcher.jar in 3.3.0-M7?

Yes, because the equinox.launcher is still creating a separate classloader for the framework.  This is the classloader which the equinox.launcher is adding the osgi.framework.extensions to before launching the framework.  The option osgi.framework.ParentClassloader is only telling equinox.launcher what to use as the parent classloader of the framework classloader.

In this "embedded launcher" scenario you describe with the
osgi.frameworkParentClassloader property set to "current", would the
launcher still be able to adjust the class path on its own to include
the framework extensions mentioned in the osgi.framework.extensions
