* Package name : libequinox-osgi-java Version : 3.9.1 Upstream Author : IBM Corporation and others * URL : https://www.eclipse.org/equinox/ * License : EPL-1.0 Programming Lang: Java Description : Equinox OSGi framework This package includes the Eclipse Equinox OSGi framework, which can be used outside Eclipse. Equinox is an implementation of the OSGi core framework specification, a set of bundles that implement various optional OSGi services and other infrastructure for running OSGi-based systems. The Equinox OSGi core framework implementation is used as the reference implementation and as such it implements all the required features of the latest OSGi core framework specification. More generally, the goal of the Equinox project is to be a first class OSGi community and foster the vision of Eclipse as a landscape of bundles. As part of this, it is responsible for developing and delivering the OSGi framework implementation used for all of Eclipse. This package is already in Debian but is currently built from src:eclipse. To improve the maintainability of libequinox-osgi-java and since it is rather difficult to maintain the Eclipse IDE as a whole (#681726) we go this route to reduce complexity and to ensure that reverse-dependencies of libequinox-osgi-java continue to function even when the Eclipse IDE does not.
