Hi,

assuming you have a regular JAR and a source ZIP/TGZ (common distribution format for Java
libraries), for example:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/itext/iText/iText5. 0.2/iText-5.0.2.jar
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/itext/iText/iText5. 0.2/iText-src-5.0.2.tar.gz

I want to find/write a little tool that automates:

- converting this to a binary plug-in (like, bnd)
- creating a Eclipse-SourceBundle source attachment
- adding both to a p2 repository as single IU

How would you go about this?
Does something like this already exist?

Greetings,

Ralf
