I asked at equinox-dev and it seems there's no Bundle-BuddyPolicy header
in OSGi standard
(my question listed in  and).
Moreover there's nothing wrong with Eclipse-BuddyPolicy (except it's
Eclipse-specific). It should be deprecated - at least as far as I know.
Whether it's good idea to include this Equinox specific header is
different question. My personal state is to include it because
* other OSGi frameworks will ignore this header
* for Equinox OSGi it doesn't mean any significant load
* users wishing to go "buddy classloading policy" way will not have to
edit manually unpack JAR, modify MANIFEST.MF headers and pack it as JAR
Have a nice day!

Hi Gunnar, Ekke,
FYI, since a few days, we started publishing a composite p2 repository
at http://logback.qos.ch/p2/. It contains two child repositories,
called "proper" and "beagle". The "beagle" repo publishes the
logback-beagle plugin which is a console-like view for logging. The
"proper" repository publishes bundles for slf4j-api, logback-core and
OSGi bundles still need a way to pass logback-classic a configuration
file. Several technical for achieving this are explained by Libor
Jelinek at . I think logback-classic should support Eclipse buddy
policy. Would you have any objections if I added
"Eclipse-BuddyPolicy: registered" to logback-classic.jar's MANIFEST ?
Your comments are most welcome,
