  • A typo in OSGi's 3.5.4 Import-Package Header chapter?


    I don't know where I could send the question and await a response so I'm sending here hoping it won't break any rules.

    The chapter 3.5.4 Import-Package Header in OSGi 4.1 spec reads:

    The syntax permits multiple package names, separated by semi-colons, to be described in a short form.

    I think it should read "separated by colons" as indicated by its syntax.

    The example in this section is incorrect too as it uses semi-colons to separate packages.

    Am I correct? I can't believe noone reported it earlier so I'm quite certain I *am* wrong.

    It is a semi colon (";&quot

    When I look at the spec, it looks like a semi colon to me. Certainly not a colon. We don't use colon in the manifest syntax as far as I can recall.

    So I guess you are wrong :-)

      Yes, you're right I'm wrong ;-) Thanks. Don't know how I could think otherwise.

        Got it! After some more thinking I know what I meant at first ;-)

        I thought about the comma (that's "colon" in my previous post). I think the examples should use it rather than semi-colon. Is that correct?
