I am trying to deploy a very basic OSGi Swing based app using the p2 app director. I am essentially following the process explained by Jeff McAffer in g-with-p2/

When I run my launch configuration for the deploy, I get a NullPointerException which states "A null service reference is not allowed", stack trace below.

I am using the following args:

Program args:
-console -clean -application
-metadataRepository file://scratch/prova/repository
-artifactRepository file://scratch/prova/repository
-installUI prova2
-version 1.0.0.qualifier
-destination /scratch/prova
-bundlepool /scratch/prova

VM args: -Dosgi.noShutdown=true

I am using Eclipse 3.6.

Any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong?


Stack trace:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2011-04-11 14:24:57.957

I'm having a similar problem, did you get this resolved and if so do you mind sharing your solution?
