I just noticed that I couldn't use the "SLF4J Logger" template. The reason is, that the dependency on slf4j can not be recognised although I have an slf4j plugin on the classpath.

The built-in template states "org.slf4j.api:slf4j.api". If I create my own template the dependency looks like this: "org.slf4j:slf4j-api".

I asume that the original template was created with the plug-in that is distributed with eclipse. I've had some issues with this so I use the jar downloaded directly from This has a different bundle name: slf4j.api.

Is there a way to define the dependencies on packages, like it is possible in the manifest editor?

Hi Christoph.


Is there a way to define the dependencies on packages, like it is possible in the manifest editor?

Defining dependencies on packages (ideally with version ranges) is not possible, as Code Recommenders tracks dependencies (unlike OSGi) not on the package level but on the JAR/project level.

That being said, it would be useful if one could define aliases so that the OSGi-fied SLF4J (org.slf4j.api:slf4j.api) and plain-vanilla SLF4J (org.slf4j:slf4j-api) would be treated as equivalent. Progress on this will be tracked in Bug 453010.
