Re: [equinox-dev] OSGi/Equinox and Java SPI

Hi Gunnar,

I will try the strategy of placing the JAR on the system classpath and using the org.osgi.framework.system.packages.extra directive to expose the packages to my bundles.

In general, this combination is problematic. It doesn't work at all when
the consumer side only uses the system class loader. There are
workarounds using fragments or buddy class-loading if the consumer side
also is an OSGi bundle.

The only workaround for you is to make the library available to the
system classloader. You can then make the library packages available to
your OSGi bundles using boot delegation.
