Should be definitely possible. I also plan to query Maven metadata. But
I'm not that familiar with OSGi, what kinds of information would you be
interested in? Does it mean just storing and querying the manifests or
should I use something more high-level?
I'd be interested in manifest attributes like Bundle-SymbolicName,
Bundle-Version, Require-Bundle, Import-Package, and Export-Package.
Storing those attributes should work though I know Eclipse's runtime might
do some extra things that in some cases would cause differences between
what the manifest shows, and what is actually provided, but I think it's
still a good start.
