Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-1731) Native library extraction could be improved to help cases where there are dependencies among libraries

Richard S. Hall commented on FELIX-1731:
----------------------------------------

It's a hack when it depends on implementation details. :-)

And I don't necessarily think hacks are a bad thing...hollywood and the media are responsible
for "hackers" becoming bad guys.

> Sometimes native libraries have dependencies on other native libraries. OSGi doesn't
really support this situation. However, certain approaches to extracting native libraries
makes it possible to hack up a solution. With framework 2.0.0, the cache layout was changed
to extract each native library into its own directory to account for the fact that fragments
with native libraries may attach to multiple hosts. Unfortunately, this change makes it not
possible to employ such hacks to resolve native library dependencies. We could probably change
the approach slightly to make such hacks work again.
