             Summary: Support parallel bundle starting
                 Key: FELIX-5383
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: File Install
    Affects Versions: fileinstall-3.5.4
            Reporter: Matt Magoffin

I have an application that uses Felix File Install to start a set of bundles 
that use Blueprint configuration extensively, but with the poll time disabled 
({{felix.fileinstall.poll = 0}}) because I only want the bundles started at 
application startup time. Sometimes one bundle might have a Blueprint service 
dependency provided by another bundle such that when started and that other 
bundle has not been started yet causes a service timeout. The ordering File 
Install uses to start bundles is indeterminate (a {{HashSet}} is passed to 
{{startBundles(Collection<Bundle> bundles)}}) so I thought a good solution 
would be to start bundles in parallel, so if one bundle gets stuck when 
starting, waiting for a Blueprint service to become available, other bundles 
can continue to be started under the assumption one of them will be providing 
that service "soon".
