Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-705) Consider supporting per-package JAR file metadata

Consider supporting per-package JAR file metadata

                 Key: FELIX-705
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-705
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: felix-1.2.0
            Reporter: Richard S. Hall

The JAR spec allows metadata to be specified for packages (e.g., Package.getSpecificationVersion(),
etc.). Currently, Felix supports JAR-wide metadata (i.e., the metadata is defined once in
the manifest main attributes and is applied to all packages in the JAR file); however, it
is also possible to specify per-package metadata. There are some issues in supporting this
that need to be considered, such as from where to do the values come (i.e., just the bundle
JAR or embedded JARs, etc.) and the impact on performance and memory consumption.

Probably the simplest approach would be to only support metadata in the bundle JAR file itself
and not in embedded content or fragments, but is this the correct approach? We need to think
about it.
