Subject Re: Is there an OSGI Framework Bundle API for accessing nested archive content?
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 18:55:18 GMT

Bundle.getResources() does seem to work, but I am afraid it does not help me
in this case as each EJB jar can have its own META-INF/validation.xml and
when there are mulitple EJB jars in the EAR, it is not possible to
distinguish which URL points to the one I am looking for in particular.
