Think that you are using WAB ? If does, it is required to add all the required import-packages, including the one used in web.xml org.apache.wink.server.internal.servlet. Geronimo will only generate import-packages for WAR, not for WAB, as WAB has already been a bundle.

Hi,
    I'm getting the following error when trying to use REST (WINK) within a OSGi bundle:-

    <servlet-name>JAX-RS Servlet</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/rest/*</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>
</web-app>

I have no other setup files.  I am using the full profile Geronimo 3.0.0 release.

Does anyone know what I have missed?   I have not included the wink jars in the project lib, as I want to use the one installed in the server and I want the benefit on injection.

Google and forum searches have drawn a blank  :-(

Thank you,

Michael
