Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-98) Improve/simplify bundle manifest parsing
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2006 14:44:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-98?page=comments#action_12423083 ] 
Marcel Offermans commented on FELIX-98:

Furthermore, it would be nice if this parser could be made as independent of other code as
possible, so it's possible to use this parser outside of the OSGi framework. This means we
could do the same checks from maven, of some other external testing tool.

> Bundle manifest parsing is currently a little ugly; the code is scattered around various
classes and how parsing weaves its way through these classes is somewhat convoluted. The ManifestParser
class was created to address this issue and has already improved the situation incrementally,
but it still needs more work to get it complete. All bundle manifest parsing, verification,
and normalization should happen in the ManifestParser class so that there is a single place
that deals with this task, as opposed to the current combination of ManifestParser, R4Export,
and R4Import.
