Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2819) packageinfo files in src/main/java are ignored
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2011 19:05:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2819?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12989749#comment-12989749

Simon Chemouil commented on FELIX-2819:

This would be nice indeed.

Just for the record (you might find it useful), we use the @Version bnd annotation on the
package statement in the package-info.java file to achieve the same, and Maven is happy with
this since it's a Java source file.


package com.mycompany.myproject.mypackage

import aQute.bnd.annotation;

One thing nice with this is that it's possible to use a String constant defined in a Java
class, for those times when we want to make the version a part of the Java API... And this
usage finally makes package-info.java interesting for more than just package javadoc. Drawbacks
are that we depend on bnd.annotation's JAR at compile time only for manifest generation, and
that no tool that I know of updates these versions when the API evolves.

Hope this helps.

>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Maven Bundle Plugin
>            Reporter: Alasdair Nottingham
> The bnd tool can pick up the package version from a packageinfo file if it is stored
next to the java files.
> The maven-bundle-plugin will only include them in the jar, and make them visible to bnd
if they are in the src/main/resources directory. I would like to use these files for specifying
versions, rather than putting it in the pom. This allows me to specify the version once in
this file even if it is repackaged in a different jar later.
> The problem is I have to put the files into src/main/resources which significantly reduces
the chance of updating them when a change is made. Could the maven-bundle-plugin be updated
to put the packageinfo files from src/main/java into the jar before calling bnd?
> Thanks
