Add support for embedding dependency JAR files to bundle plugin

                 Key: FELIX-308
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-308
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Maven Bundle Plugin
            Reporter: Richard S. Hall

The following is a proposal for how to support embedding dependency JAR files in the bundle
plugin. The general approach is a slightly modified version of a proposal by Peter Kriens.
The idea is to add a mechanism to deal with embedding JARs that is very similar to how the
old maven plugin worked, but doing it in a slightly more generic way than the old plugin by
adding the following instruction:

    embed-dependency        ::= clause ( ',' clause ) *
    clause                  ::= MATCH ( ';' attr '=' MATCH )
    attr                    ::= 'groupId' | 'artifactId' | 'version' | 'scope'
    MATCH                   ::= <globbed regular expressions>

This instruction would be used to match the specified Maven dependencies for embedding. Any
matching dependency would have its JAR file embedded onto the resulting bundle JAR file and
it would be appended to the Bundle-ClassPath header after ".".

This would allow people to easily achieve the same behavior as the old plugin by simply doing:


Thus, this instruction would automatically embed any maven dependencies that were of scope
"compile" or "runtime" and append them to the bundle class path.
