Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4912) Should plugins be packed jar files or exploded?

Should plugins be packed jar files or exploded?

                 Key: GERONIMO-4912
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: osgi
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: David Jencks

Currently the osgi framework only works with plugins packed as jar files, not exploded jar
files like the regular geronimo server.  Since osgi can deal with classpaths inside a  jar
file, I rather think that we should proceed with this as standard practice for the rest of
the server.  However this will mean moving the archiving functionality out of the car-maven-plugin
and into the deployer.

The alternative is to make sure that unpacked plugins actually work in osgi.  I didn't experiment
with this at all.
