Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 43282] Add OSGi packaging info to log4j and companions
Date Sat, 12 Jun 2010 05:33:22 GMT

--- Comment #6 from Curt Arnold <carnold@apache.org> 2010-06-12 01:33:17 EDT ---
I've committed rev 953935 which results in a log4j.jar which can be installed
and started in the Equinox OSGi framework supplied with Eclipse.

For future ref:

cd /usr/lib/eclipse/plugins
java -jar org.eclipse.osgi_---.jar -console
install file:///home/.../log4j-1.2.17-SNAPSHOT.jar

Based on a suggest from the 2008 exchange on user@felix, I added a
DynamicImport-Package directive via the maven-jar-plugin.  Hopefully, that
would allow resolving any user-supplied appender that was specified via a
configuration file.

javax.swing, com.ibm.uvm.tools and com.sun.jdmk.comm are explicitly blocked
from being listed in the import list.  Swing is used by the obsolete log
viewing tools still in the java, but not exported.  com.ibm.uvm.tools is
dynamically loaded for some ancient VisualAge specific behavior. 
com.sun.jdmk.comm provides an http service for JMX.  If needed, these classes
can still be obtained via the DynamicImport-Package.

I've listed three javax packages not included in Java SE 1.5 as optional.  The
javax.jmdns is not zeroconf implementation and despite the package name is not
from Sun or part of the Java Community Process.

All the other imported classes are either part of Java SE 1.5 or are exported
by log4j.jar.

The maven-bundle-plugin has enough info that it could provide the version
qualifier on the exported classes, but it doesn't.  I can bounce this off of
users@felix, but is there a reason that you think that we should specify it?
