No versioning in OSGI Bundle names

The "WebSphere MQ" OSGi bundles for example "" include the version instead of using a version independent name "" like DB2 does. In consequence all CICS JVM profiles must be changed at an MQ version update

    There is now a very practical workaround since V9.0 :
    /usr/lpp/mqm/java/lib/OSGiCurrent/ ls -lsia -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/ -> ../OSGi/

    I assume this RFE is likely "delivered"

    Best Regards

    The current number formatting is a very Eclipse Plugin style of working; therefore we are considering what changes we can make in future releases to provide both Eclipse-centric and OSGi-centric packages.
