Taking a deep dive into Virgo 3.0.0.M03 via STS 2.6 and the tooling there. While it seems the tooling works well for development within Eclipse, the projects I am thinking to migrate, and my development process itself are Maven based. I found the Greenpages example application, and that shows the finished product, but was curious if there was a tutorial somewhere that would describe the process for setting it up, how Maven dependencies translate to bundle dependencies, etc. I've seached high and low on Google, but Eclipse Virgo Maven doesn't return many useful results.

Anyone have any suggestions outside of spending time breaking apart the Greenpages example?

Maven dependencies are translated to manifest entries by tools like BND and Bundlor. They work on .class/bytecode level, so the build system does not really matter.

The oposite direction (manifest to maven dependencies) is covered by Tycho.

It's up to you to chose what you will use, but for small projects I perfonally prefer Bundlor/BND approach. Tycho is usually used in enterprise style build environments with lots of P2 update sites.

Btw Dmitry extended the Greenpages so you may want to take a look at his work:

I'm afraid that we don't have detailed description on setting up the build environment (other than these two resources mentioned in the thread), but since it seems you are going to set this up anyway you may want to contribute the steps or even add them to the guide Smile
