Subject MetaTypeService requires designate in xml?
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2011 14:46:51 GMT
Hi list,

I'm working an a fileinstall extension to handle metatype files and
ran into this. Not sure if I should report it as a bug or that my
understanding of the spec needs some work.  Anyway, it seems
MetaTypeService requires me to specify at least one Designate in any
OSGI-INF/*.xml metatype file. If no designate is present it will be
ignored and I am unable to retrieve the ObjectClassDefinition.

My use-case is that I want'to ship the OCD within the bundle and
provide the Designates via some other runtime mechanism (eg
fileinstall) and all work fine. But when I remove the designate from
the "OCD MetaType" things fall apart as the MetattypeService code
simply skips everything if there are no designates.

bug or feature?
