Subject Re: BndTools and DS 1.2 Annotations
Date Sun, 16 Jun 2013 22:36:35 GMT
Hi Carsten;

I don't know if you have already started some works for a bndtools
scrplugin,
but if this may help you, I just submitted
FELIX-4135<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4135>,
which contains a simple BND plugin for the scrplugin.

This BND plugin just internally calls your scr generator in order to
generate scr descriptors (for apache scr annotations, and ds 1.2
annotations).

You just have to include this in your directive.bnd:

-plugin
org.apache.felix.scrplugin.bnd.SCRDescriptorBndPlugin;destdir=target/classes

Notice that the "destdir" option has to be provided after the plugin,
because the generator must be configured with an output directory. Other
optional attributes are also supported, like "specVersion",
"generateAccessor", etc ... you can take a look at the
SCRDescriptorBndPlugin class. I actually adapted the code from
SCRDescriptorTask, in order to execute the scr generator from a bnd plugin.

Let me know if you find the attach code helpful ?

PS: I only tested this plugin from a bnd ant task, but I did not have time
to make a full test with bndtools (I don't know how to do that for now). I
will try to do it this week.

kind regards;
/Pierre
