Subject [jira] [Commented] (MINDEXER-97) Add OSGi 5.0 MANIFEST headers to OsgiArtifactIndexCreator
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2017 13:54:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MINDEXER-97?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15928062#comment-15928062
] 

Simon Spero commented on MINDEXER-97:
-------------------------------------

An important addition to the manifest headers is the artifact SHA-256, which is required for
content. Since full SHA-1 has now fallen, this wouldn't be of value only to OSGI. 

Furthermore,  the  deprecated Export-Service header is indexed (though Import-Service isn't).
Both these headers were never used by any resolvers, which is why they could be deprecated.

I can make these changes and submit a pull request from github. I'm not sure if I can make
it track this issue. 

When  is the next release scheduled,  and would a changed version be likely to be used on
maven central relatively soon thereafter?

> It would be extremely useful if the following MANIFEST headers were added to the index:
>  - Require-Capability
>  - Provide-Capability
>  - DynamicImport-Package
> Especially the first two would be necessary to be able to build up a database that helps
finding dependencies for unsatisfied bundles.
