Forrest Xia created GERONIMO-6353:

             Summary: Add "DynamicImport-Package: *" when using install-bundle command to
transform a jar into a bundle
                 Key: GERONIMO-6353
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: deployment
    Affects Versions: 3.0-beta-1, 3.0
            Reporter: Forrest Xia
            Assignee: Forrest Xia
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.0

Think this scenario:
User has a custom Tomcat Valve class to be defined via server.xml, first he generated a jar
from an IDE, then use install-bundle command to install into the server, then the user defines
the valve in the server.xml to use.

This scenario introduces a cycle dependencies relationship between the user bundle and Tomcat
1. To resolve the user bundle, the Tomcat bundles need to be resolved first
2. To start Geronimo Tomcat module, the user bundle needs to be resolved first.

Currently, the install-bundle command add "resolution:=optional" properties to the installed
user bundle, though the user bundle could be started when server boot, but if the there are
packages cannot be resolved with "resolution:=optional", those packages won't be resolved

An improvement is to add "DynamicImport-Package: *" header to the generated menifest.
