The stop() methods should be called, so if this is not happening then it is probably a bug.
I think there were some changes in this area recently, so I will look into it.

Hello guys,

First I'd like to congratulate all Felix developers for the great work 
you are doing. We've been previously using Oscar and now Felix for SIP 
Communicator and have always been completely satisfied with their 
quality and  reliability.

I have a quick question regarding shutting down the Felix framework. 
Right now we're doing it by stopping the 0 bundle. Personally I was 
expecting that this would result in individually stopping all installed 
bundles but their Activator.stop() methods don't get called. My first 
question is therefore - Is this supposed to be the case?

If yes, i.e. if stopping the framework is not supposed to call 
Activator.stop() for every bundle, then what is the commonly accepted 
way (if any) of performing pre-shutdown operations? Should every bundle 
add a framework/bundle/service listener and monitor the state of the 
framework in order to detect it when it is about to get stopped?
