- Eclipse is build upon an OSGi framework called Equinox
- OSGi is supposed to support install/remove/restart and version-ing of bundles
- Eclipse plugins are OSGi bundles
So why the heck does Eclipse need to restart after installing new plugins?
Why does it need to restart when updating plugins?
Isn't one of the major points of OSGi to make that unnecessary?
