Add maven NAR files to Target Platform [message #1064151] Mon, 17 June 2013 20:26 Go to next message

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but if not, maybe someone can suggest a better place to put it.

I have a rather large "project" composed of a couple dozen plugins. I have created a target platform to manage dependencies of the various plugins in the projects. One of the plugins will have a dependency on a maven "nar" plugin, which contains some JNI wrapper code to some platform specific DLLs. The problem is, I haven't found a way of getting the target platform (Windows->Preferences->Plug-in Development->Target Platform) to recognize nar files as a valid plug-in. If I add the folder which contains the nar file into my target platform, when I let it refresh and then "edit" my target platform it shows "0 plug-ins available" in the Locations tab for the folder containing the nar file. Does anybody know how I would go about adding this type of dependency to my plugin project? Would I have to somehow convert my nar plugin to a jar?

I assume this step is necessary. I have not seen a NAR artifact yet. But
it looks like this is not OSGi-ified yet. Thus, it needs to be converted
into OSGi bundle jars. It might be necessary to create multiple platform
specific OSGi fragments containing the native libs.
