Subject OSGi Bundle Repository support for Archiva
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2008 06:35:37 GMT
Hey guys,
I started some work on building an OBR repository consumer that will 
produce a repository.xml file in the root of the managed repositories.

For those who don't know OBR is the OSGi Bundle Repository [1]. The 
repository.xml (or .zip) describes the bundles, their locations and 
versions that are available in the repository (or a remote one for that 
matter).

OSGi bundles deployed using Maven to Archiva (or simply placed in the 
repository) should then be made almost immediately available via OBR 
clients.

Anyway, this should give us the basis for excellent support in Archiva 
OSGi. Atlassian plan to use Archiva as the platform for serving plugins 
and their dependent OSGi bundles - which is really cool :)


Anyone have any thoughts, questions?

Cheers,
James
