Subject Creating PrimitiveComponentType without importing iPOJO required Packages
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2014 11:11:52 GMT
Hey, I have the following issue:

In my OSGI bundle, I create a Component Type using iPOJO API as the following:

public void start(BundleContext context) throws Exception {

        type = new PrimitiveComponentType().setBundleContext(context)

        instance = type.createInstance();


Now, according to this source, http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/felix-users/201204.mbox/%3C1FCCF246-DB56-4E86-A0EE-7E57EC96DDB7@gmail.com%3E

iPOJO manipulation rely on some classes of org.apache.felix.ipojo, and so I need to import
this package. All bundles intended to have iPOJO component, need to import: org.apache.felix.ipojo
and org.apache.felix.ipojo.architecture.

For some reason, I don't like to import these packages from my bundle. I want my bundle to
have iPOJO component without importing any iPOJO-related packages.

Although the answer in the link continues saying:

To avoid this manual import you can:

- use the iPOJO url handler and so install the bundle with: ipojo://file:/the.path.to.my.bundle.jar

I tried the above solution, by adding "ipojo://" part to my bundle installation file path
as the following,


but when I run my program, I get the following error:

org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Unable to cache bundle: ipojo://file:C:\Users\zaid.almahmoud\Desktop\plugins\MyComponent.jar

Caused by: java.net.MalformedURLException: Unknown protocol: ipojo

What am I missing here? Thanks.
