I'm not aware of anyone trying it on Felix
recently. I think it would be valuable to try it and report on how it works.
I suspect Pascal and/or Ian would have more useful thoughts on this, but
I believe they are both away on holiday this week.

simpleconfigurator on other frameworks?
Thanks for the info. Speaking only about simpleconfigurator for
the moment, has anyone tested it out on Felix recently (e.g. as part of

There was a time in the past when we had prototypes of frameworkadmin for
Felix and Knopplerfish but those were abandoned. The purpose was always
for the frameworkadmin API to remain generic, and then have separate implementations
per framework. There are some related bugs with a small amount of historical

Although simpleconfigurator has no 'p2' in its namespace it is maintained
by the p2 team. So this may be a better question for p2-dev. That
being said I know that simple configurator has a goal to not depend on
anything out side of the framework. It is driven by the content of
bundles.info. The bundles.info file is managed by the rest of p2
(or anything else, simpleconfigurator does not care who manages that file
as long as it uses the the expected syntax/format). Others from p2
may be able to point you to some efforts from a while back to run p2 on
other frameworks besides Equinox.
Lewis ---07/23/2013 03:34:37 PM---Hi Folks, A couple of questions about
simpleconfigurator (and simpleconfigurator
A couple of questions about simpleconfigurator (and simpleconfigurator
1) I see from a casual look at the dependencies that it only imports
org.osgi packages...does this mean that SC/SCM can run on other
frameworks (e.g. Felix)?
2) I assume that simple configurator depend upon FrameworkAdmin
service...is that right? What other services does it depend upon?
3) Is there a web/wiki page that has docs WRT these questions and/or
others? I found , but it's maybe a little dated (?)
