Each requirement and capability has an
effective or is
effective=resolve. An effective of
resolve is always processed by the resolver.However, in (very) special cases it is necessary to provide more rules.
-resolve.effective syntax is as follows:
-resolve.effective ::= effective ( ',' effective )* effective ::= NAME (';skip:=' skip ) skip ::= skip = '"' namespace ( ',' namespace ) * '"'
The simplest model is to just list the names, for example:
In this case, the resolver will only look at requirements that are either resolve or active.
meta effective could then be:
-resolve.effective: resolve,active, meta
However, in very, very rare (usually error) cases it is necessary to exclude certain namespaces. This can be done by using the
-resolve.effective: resolve,active, meta;skip:='osgi.extender,osgi.wiring.package'
