This page is focussed on capturing how EclipseLink will be developed and used for an OSGi (Equinox) environment.
The goal of this effort is to produce OSGi bundles for use in other Eclipse projects and RCP applications. While the focus is on OSGi it is understood that Equinox extensions will be required.
- Make EclipseLink bundles easy to use within other Eclipse projects and RCP applications without hindering the Java (SE/EE) usage
- Ensure that the bundles offer flexibility in their independent usage. The usage of EclipseLink JPA should not force the usage of EclipseLink's JAXB
As of 1.0M2 EclipseLink does not make OSGi/Equinox bundles available. This page is tracking the requirements, proposals, and discussion as to how EclipseLink can most effectively be bundled.
