Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1388) HttpClient/Core lacks OSGI compatible fields in manifest
Date Sun, 18 Aug 2013 11:18:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1388?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13743185#comment-13743185

Morten Christensen commented on HTTPCLIENT-1388:

Yes, I have seen them but it is highly troublesome to have alternative jars for osgi because
of 1) surprise that the normal jars won't work 2) Transitive dependencies
Right now I am fighting with a maven project getting the right osgi jars included and because
of the many transitive dependencies of httpclient I currently get some wrong dependencies
included (trying to identifiy all dependencies and including the osgi versions by hand).
It would be much easier for users and maintainers if there is just one jar for both osgi and
non-osgi use.

> To be usable in OSGI environments, HttpClient/HttpCore needs to have a osgi symbol name
and import/export packages in the manifest file. An easy way to do this using maven is to
use the maven-bundle-plugin (http://felix.apache.org/site/apache-felix-maven-bundle-plugin-bnd.html)
which will add the manifest attributes automatically. There is also a bndtools plugin to do
this in ANT / eclipse.
