Subject Re: What does effective:=active mean?
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2016 12:50:49 GMT
So, I will explain a new time (for the third time ;)).

When you are using features XML with namespace 1.3 or 1.4, the feature 
resolver uses the service enforcement. It means that it checks the 
service capability in the bundles. The service requirement is basically 
a bundle that needs a service "A" at runtime. So the resolver will check 
the features containing the bundle providing such capability (exposing 
the service). It's what the effective:=active mean.

The corresponding MANIFEST header is:


On the other hand, the requirement header looks like:


Unfortunately, in Karaf 4.0.3, 4.0.4, 4.0.5, the service enforcement was 
enabled for features xmlns 1.3.0 NOT for 1.4.0 (it was a bug). This bug 
has been fixed in Karaf 4.0.6. That's why when you upgraded from 4.0.4 
to 4.0.6, the feature resolver is now "active" for your features XML and 
check the service enforcement.
