Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-448) commons-vfs 2.0 JAR has flawed OSGi MANIFEST.MF
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 14:30:13 GMT


Gary Gregory commented on VFS-448:

I think that once the HDFS provider is reviewed, we can look at doing a 2.1 release.

In the meantime, does a local trunk build work for your OSGi environment?

> The 2.0 release has a problem as its build using an older Felix Bundle plugin which you
guys inheirt from the parent pom.xml which is version 21
> org.apache.commons:commons-parent:21
> That uses felix bundle plugin 1.4.3 which unfortunately does not honor the maven dependencies
at <scope>option</scope>, but instead marks the osgi meta-data as mandatory imports.
> This means using commons-vfs 2.0 release in OSGi is hard, as you need all the 3rd party
JARS and they should be OSGi bundles as well, and they may have flaws as well. So it just
goes again.
> I suggest to upgrade to parent:27 or better which is using the latest Felix Bundle plugin
> It would be lovely if you guys would release a new release with the osgi metadata fixed.
Then people can use it in OSGi. If not they can't really do that.
