Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-218) Support BND directives in maven-bundle-plugin section of pom.xml
Date Wed, 28 Feb 2007 14:31:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-218?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12476596

Stuart McCulloch commented on FELIX-218:

BTW, I'm working on the beginnings of a maven archetype that uses this functionality to provide
a single manifest shared between Eclipse and maven/BND. The manifest is included in the instructions
sent to the BND tool and extracted from the generated jarfile at the end of the packaging
phase (not strictly necessary, but it makes sure the manifest is the same).

In case anyone is interested, it's available from  https://scm.ops4j.org/repos/ops4j/laboratory/users/stuart/maven/archetypes/pax-bundle-archetype

To create a new pax bundle project with basic Eclipse JDT settings, checkout and install the
archetype (mvn install) and enter:

    mvn archetype:create -Peclipse \
        -DarchetypeGroupId=org.ops4j.pax.maven \
        -DarchetypeArtifactId=pax-bundle-archetype \
        -DarchetypeVersion=0.1.0-SNAPSHOT \
        -DgroupId=com.example \
        -DartifactId=test \
        -DpackageName=com.example.test \

Note: this archetype doesn't yet add PDE support to the Eclipse project and is liable to change
at any time :)

It also requires patched versions of the BND tool and maven bundle plugin in your local ~/.m2/repository

>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Maven Plugin
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
>            Reporter: Stuart McCulloch
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.0.0
>         Attachments: bnd_include_directive.patch, bnd_include_directive_and_handle_manifests.patch,
> The latest snapshot of the maven-bundle-plugin doesn't support BND directives (such as
-donotcopy) in the pom.xml
> Unfortunately we can't have XML tags that start with '-', so we have to use '_' in the
XML and convert this to '-' in the plugin.
> For example:
>         <configuration>
>           <instructions>
>             <bundleName>My Bundle</bundleName>
>             ... etc ...
>             <_donotcopy>(CVS|.svn|.+.bak|~.+)</_donotcopy>
>           </instructions>
>         </configuration>
> I have a simple patch for this issue, which also adds support for the '-include' directive
to let you drag in other property files.
> This can be useful if you have a common set of manifest entries defined in a parent project
- however, this requires a patch
> to BND to expose an API to process the include directive, as currently it's only processed
when properties are loaded from
> a file - not when they are set programatically.
