I'm used to do doing my JavaFX OSGi development with Apache Felix and Gradle, but I'm hoping to do a different app with the benifits of the Eclipse platform, especially the e(fx)clipse bundle.

Until now I find it a bit daunting, even though I've created some Eclipse IDE plugins in the past for a customized build environment. Then again, there the target platform was the same as the IDE itself so all things were present.

I've setup my environment with the e(fx)clipse target platform, and a local library folder for some additional libraries. I'd like to create a BundleActivator, but it seems to be not included in an exported bundle. Therefore I either have to mark it somewhere as exported or have the dependency downloaded. I just don't know where.

I guess I need to add an update site, select the right bundle. How to know which bundle? Is there some way to find out?

Regards,
Onno.

Hi Onno,

The BundleActivator interface is in the bundle org.eclipse.osgi. This bundle is included in the e(fx)clipse target platform.

You can use the view "Target Platform State" to see which bundles are loaded as part of the current target platform. Is the bundle org.eclipse.osgi listed here?
Maybe your target platform definition is flawed. What does it look like?

Christoph

I removed the project and started it all over again. Now the BundleActivator can be found in the right bundle, and the target platform does contain it.
