Inside P2's profile (2) - the fragment matches all osgi bundles

Recently our installer met a strange bug, it didn't uninstall all legacy bundles after updating to new version. Finally I found it's due to a magic fragment is missing in the profile due to some causes.

   
     
       
     

     
       
     

     
       
       
     

     
       
     

     
     
       
         
            installBundle(bundle:${artifact})
         

         
            uninstallBundle(bundle:${artifact})
         

         

         
         
            setStartLevel(startLevel:4);
         

       
     
   

It has 'hostRequirements' element that represents it's a fragment IU and match all the eclipse's plug-ins in that profile. And this fragment defines the touch point actions for its hosts that will do installBundle action during 'install' phrase and uninstallBundle action during 'uninstall' phrase. It's a very good way to remove the duplicate touch point definitions for all eclipse's plug-ins in the profile.

BTW, p2's engine also doesn't attach this fragment to the eclipse's plug-in IU if the top level IU doesn't have the STRICT rule. I'm not sure the root cause of designing for it, but it's the fact.
