I'm looking at an IU that I was fairly sure was a fragment. The IU in
question is the 'org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86'.
When I read this IU using a query, it doesn't arrive as a
IInstallableUnitFragment and when I look at it's XML in the content.jar,
it doesn't have any hostRequirements. It's also missing the fragment signum:
<property name='org.eclipse.equinox.p2.type.fragment' value='true'/>
So I guess this isn't a fragment then, at least not from a P2
perspective? OSGi will see it as a fragment. The manifest contains:
and this entry can also be found. Not sure what it means, but perhaps
it's some ancient way of declaring the host requirement?
<provided namespace='osgi.fragment' name='org.eclipse.swt'
Can someone please explain why the IU is declared this way?
