Hello,

Im currently developing OSGi bundles on top of kura with Eclipse and I came to a point where I need to create deployment packages from them.
I know how to build them manually, but I am looking for a way to automate this process with maven or some other tools.

I am currently playing around with felix maven plugin and dentrassi osgi-dp maven plugins:

 <plugin>
     <groupId>org.apache.felix</groupId>
     <artifactId>maven-bundle-plugin</artifactId>
     <version>2.3.5</version>
     <extensions>true</extensions>
     <configuration>
         <manifestLocation>META-INF</manifestLocation>
             <instructions>
                 <Bundle-SymbolicName>${project.artifactId};singleton:=true</Bundle-SymbolicName>
                 <Bundle-Name>${project.name}</Bundle-Name>
                 <Bundle-Version>${project.version}</Bundle-Version>
                 <Import-Package>*</Import-Package>
                 <Export-Package>*</Export-Package>
             </instructions>
    </configuration>
</plugin>

<plugin>
    <groupId>de.dentrassi.maven</groupId>
    <artifactId>osgi-dp</artifactId>
    <version>0.4.0</version>
    <extensions>true</extensions>
</plugin>


But it seems like if you use maven then you lose eclipse plugins functionality because manifest is generated by felix plugin instructions and to build DP you have to again define all the maven dependencies that go into it.

Is there any guidelines or examples how it should be done?

Hi,
you could use features like here: https://github.com/eclipse/kura/tree/develop/kura/features/org.eclipse.kura.driver.s7plc

Hope that helps.

Matteo

Thanks for a quick response.

I have been looking around your example and if I correctly understand, instead of defining whats going to be in a DP using maven dependencies, I can use feature.xml to define required bundles as plugins that go into it.

Where could I find the documentation on how to define features? Because these features does not look like karaf featues.

EDIT: I found that these features configurations are for tycho-source-feature-plugin
