David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-4912:
----------------------------------------

I would really rather not unpack plugins unless we have no alternative, so I'll look into
fixing these problems.

> 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.
