Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2110) The resolver should be able to resolve for some requirements in addition to resources
Date Sat, 20 Feb 2010 09:03:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2110?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12836138#action_12836138

Richard S. Hall commented on FELIX-2110:

But this is how the resolver works in the framework, we have an entity that has a set of requirements
associated with it, we don't just have requirements. I am not keen to diverge from the approach
of the framework resolver.

What we could possibly do to improve the user experience is to make some utility methods for
constructing a resource...this is something a JIRA issue has asked for with respect to converting
a bundle to a resource, so perhaps there are a set of general utility methods around this

as you don't want to actually install, because the resolver would then need a real resource.
 So in all cases, the resolver need to know about those resources, so it may be easier to
let him create and handle those completely.
