[equinox-dev] Migrating Eclipse earlyStartup extenstions to OSGI ds services

2018-04-19 Thread Lars Vogel
Friends of OSGi,

I'm currently migrating a few earlyStartup actions to OSGI DS services
in an Eclipse RCP application.

One of the OSGi services needs to have access to the command line arguments.

For the earlyStartup extension, this was solved by putting the
relevant argument into a system property during the start method of
the IApplication implementation.

But in our case, the new OSGi service gets started before the
IApplication sets the system property.

Can I access the launcher arguments within an OSGi service?

Best regards, Lars

It looks like the system bundle publishes a service of type
org.eclipse.osgi.service.environment.EnvironmentInfo. Bind to this in your
DS component, and then you can get the command line args along with various
other goodies.

I expect this will be available in any Eclipse application. I should point
out that in fully-general OSGi, command line args are not always going to
be available. The command line args are only seen by the 'public static
void main' of the Java application, and it's the launcher's choice on
whether and how to expose that information to bundles in OSGi.

Regards,
Neil
