Interface ExportedPackage


Deprecated. The PackageAdmin service has been replaced by the org.osgi.framework.wiring package.

public interface ExportedPackage

An exported package. Objects implementing this interface are created by the Package Admin service.

The term exported package refers to a package that has been exported from a resolved bundle. This package may or may not be currently wired to other bundles.

The information about an exported package provided by this object may change. An ExportedPackage object becomes stale if the package it references has been updated or removed as a result of calling PackageAdmin.refreshPackages(). If this object becomes stale, its getName() and getVersion() methods continue to return their original values, isRemovalPending() returns true, and getExportingBundle() and getImportingBundles() return null.
