Subject RE: OSGi Plugin for Maven 2.0 - add support for individual class dependencies
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2006 17:01:25 GMT
I completely agree with that. I'm fed-up to handcraft jar files to include a
couple of classes, then update and repeat the process each time a new
release is available, but I don't want a 2 MB jar inside my own bundle to
use 10 utility classes...

I welcome such an extension. In general I would like to have the  
possibility, when creating a bundle, to specify which dependencies  
should be provided at runtime and which ones will be embedded. When  
embedding dependencies, I'd like to have the choice to either "embed  
for private use" or "embed and export". An option when embedding  
would definitely be to embed only those parts of a dependency that  
you actually use (which mainly applies to the "embed for private use"  

This extension seems to be heading in the above direction, so to me  
it's a very nice first step.

Greetings, Marcel
