--------------------------------

             Summary: Consider integration with Equinox P2 repositories.
                 Key: ARIES-1076
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARIES-1076
             Project: Aries
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Subsystem
    Affects Versions: 1.0
            Reporter: John Ross


There are some who would like to use Subsystems in conjunction with Equinox P2 repositories;
however, P2 does not currently support the OSGi Repository Service specification in R5.

We may want to consider if and how we can make this happen. There are two possibilities.

(1) Work with the P2 team to add support for the OSGi Repository Service specification out
of the box. See, for example, https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=313553 and https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=393648.
Comment 1 in 393648 suggests a possible approach.

(2) Provide some sort of bridge as part of Aries. This might involve, for example, transforming
the P2 content.xml and artifacts.xml into OSGi R5 repository XML format then using an R5 compliant
repository implementation.
