Subject Re: Building Eclipse Plugins With Felix
Date Thu, 23 Nov 2006 15:49:42 GMT
There has been some work done to enable Maven to build OSGi bundles (you 
see that discussed here).  To the extent that Eclipse is just an OSGi 
system, you should be able to use the Maven function to create bundles 
that run in Eclipse.  Reality is however that the current Maven tooling is 
does not handle all the things Eclipse needs (fragments, platform-specific 
code, features, generating source bundles, ...).  There are some people in 
the Eclipse Kepler and Buckminster projects looking at building Eclipse 
things using Maven.  You might want to check there.

Re: Building Eclipse Plugins With Felix

This seems more of a Maven question, than a Felix question. Unfortunately, 
I don't know enough about Maven or Eclipse plugins to answer.

I am looking for a way to build Eclipse plug ins using Maven2 to benefit 
from the features and plug ins available for Maven.
That would be much nicer compared to the headless builds using scripting 
and the Eclipse releng package.

Can Felix be used to build Eclipse plug ins right now? Or is it intended 
to be used for this purpose in the future?
