Sounds like an ECLIPSE issue but I did not install ECLIPSE, SOFTWARE AG DID :

The error means that your bundle has a Require-Capability:; filter="(&(" entry in its manifest. So this means the bundle will only start when there is a bundle that provides this capability.

In case of the capability it is the OSGi framework (equinox) that should provide this capability. Apparently it does not do this.

So one approach would be to remove the header from you bundle Manifest. The other would be to make equinox export the capability. Perhaps you could simply try with the newest equinox version. Not sure if this helps though. You could also try to set the framework property (using -D):;“JavaSE”;version:List=“1.0,1.1,1.2,1.3,1.4,1.5,1.6,1.7,1.8”

Found the problem last night :

a) I tried to upgrade the JVM and ECLIPSE on my own but it did not help because Natural One uses it’s own “directory” for both of the above.
b) What I finally did , was to totally remove the C:/SoftwareAG directory because an UNINSTALL does not remove all the content in the above directory
c) I did a clean image install using the Software Ag installer and now Natural One V9.1.2 is working again .

Note: Not sure via Software AG does not distribute an Adabas and Entire Access with Natural One because the alternative is that I have to distribute MySQL as suggested in the samples :

Download MySQL - free - latest version (


The alternative would be … download Adabas

Not sure what you’d need Entire Access for, though.

Thanks Wolfgang,

I thought I was on the Natural One discussion list…

Docker ? I thought that was only for UNIX and I will download those images

Thanks… I owe you … but watch this space… I will be back
