Date Mon, 03 Aug 2020 19:55:23 GMT

What is the functionality difference between:

Also. I’m wanting the new service spin up per other bundle calling this service. So I have
org.Algo1 that wants this C service and I have org.Algo2 that also wants this C service. From
reading up it appears that the service factory is what I want I think but I built one inside
of Celix and it doesn’t appear to be making a new service when I perform the multiple calls.
