Betreff: Re: [orbit-dev] Retiring EBR

Xtext still uses orbit so if this leads to orbit retirement we will have to drop out from simrel if I don’t get help adopting the maven dependencies thing

Hi everyone,

When EBR was created many years ago there was a huge demand for OSGi bundles. The EBR project came up with a solution to make Maven artifacts easily consumable from p2-enabled OSGi applications. However, it never really fulfilled the role of becoming a rich source for recipes. Today the primary customer of EBR is Orbit and Eclipse (via Orbit).

In the last year, Eclipse PDE and Tycho made significant progress towards consuming Maven artifacts directly in target platforms. I've looked at the features available and started adopting that in a few projects. I think the technology is ready to make EBR obsolete. 

Therefor, I am proposing to sunset the EBR project. Thoughts? Comments?
