am quite new to the virgo tooling..

installed using (Needed for Eclipse Mars)

Created a new bundle project and modified web.xml, a servlet class and the MANIFEST.MF to
Bundle-ClassPath: WEB-INF/classes
Web-ContextPath: /web
Import-Package: javax.servlet.http;version="2.5",

then, I exported the WAB using Export -> Web -> WAR File and put it in the pickup directory of virgo server. However, it complaining that it does not have

Caused by: org.eclipse.virgo.nano.deployer.api.core.DeploymentException: Failed to read manifest for bundle from /Users//dev/virgo-tomcat-server-3.6.4.RELEASE/work/deployer/s/global/30/0/VirgoWAB.war

looking for a tutorial or simple steps that covers how to start developing a sample WAB, export as jar/war so that it can be deployed to the a remote virgo server.?

kindly advice

Hi Jeff,

I haven't used this Export functionality myself. I doubt it creates valid OSGi WAB artifacts. Some time ago I wrote a "Virgo recipe for "Uploading Files" which you could use as a starting point.

Please drop me a note in case you run into trouble with the recipe.

Hi Jeff,

The next version of the Virgo Tools will natively support Virgo development using Eclipse PDE Tools.
It will be possible to create Eclipse Plug-in projects, including WABs, using a dedicated wizard in the Virgo category and to eventually export them as binaries using the PDE export wizard File -> Export -> Plugin Development -> Deployable plug-ins and fragments.

If you want to have a look at a snapshot build and give us some feedback, you can download binaries from the build system [1], jobs >= #6, the higher the better.

You will have to create a new Virgo Runtime or (edit the existing one) in order to setup a PDE Target Platform definition.
