  • DS
    • Equinox DS is adding support in M4 for lazy started bundles
    • We now have tooling in the SDK for DS
    • Allows code to remove direct dependency on OSGi
    • About 200KB total size
    • How to handle multiple instances of a service where the instance you obtain is based on some runtime property. Possibly ComponentFactory can help.
    • Need to add public test suites
    • Need to do some more investigation on how much it helps us
  • Tests
    • We have various tests for equinox bundles that we should integrate into the build process
    • Could possibly use Common Build mechanism for building separate Equinox bundles
  • EclipseCon - We discussed what talks/tutorials the Equinox team members are thinking of submitting for EclipseCon 2009.
    • Andrew N. - PDE-Build tutorial
    • Simon - Server-side tutorial
