OSGi Frameworks

Identifier:
org.eclipse.pde.ui.osgiFrameworks

Since:
3.3

Description:

This extension point is used to register new OSGi frameworks. Each framework is associated with a launcher delegate that is called when the OSGi framework is selected in the OSGi Framework launch configuration.

Registered OSGi frameworks appear on the Plug-in Development > OSGi frameworks preference page, where a default framework can be set.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( framework+)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>


<!ELEMENT framework EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST framework

id               CDATA #REQUIRED

name             CDATA #REQUIRED

launcherDelegate CDATA #REQUIRED

initializer      CDATA #IMPLIED

>

  • id - a unique identifier of the framework
  • name - human-readable name of the OSGi framework
  • launcherDelegate - a launch configuration delegate to launch the OSGi framework. The value of this attribute is the fully qualified name of the Java class that extends org.eclipse.pde.ui.launcher.AbstractPDELaunchConfiguration.
  • initializer - initializes new OSGi Framework launch configurations with suitable defaults. The value of this attribute must be a fully-qualified name of a Java class that extends the default implementation org.eclipse.pde.ui.launcher.OSGiLaunchConfigurationInitializer. If not specified, the default initializer org.eclipse.pde.ui.launcher.OSGiLaunchConfigurationInitializer is instantiated.

Examples:

The following is an example of the extension point:


   <extension
         point=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.osgiFrameworks"
>
      <framework
            launcherDelegate=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.launcher.EquinoxLaunchConfiguration"

            id=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.EquinoxFramework"

            name=
"%Equinox.shortcut.label"
 
            initializer=
"org.eclipse.pde.internal.ui.launcher.EquinoxInitializer"
/>
   </extension>

Supplied Implementation:

PDE supplies the Equinox OSGi Framework extension to launch Equinox frameworks.
