Re: [ecf-dev] maven repos for Karaf installation/use

Hi Scott,

Yes that should be just as easy/hard as publishing our own bundles to a maven repository.

If Equinox has a Hudson instance it should be easy to make a build for them that publishes their bundles into the central maven repo. I am not sure if we should do it for them.

AFAIK, but I could be wrong, Maven does not have this notion of including third party plugins in other features like P2 does.

Hi Folks,

ECF has been producing maven repos of it's bundles for some time [1]. ÂHowever, I am getting more requests for having the ECF Karaf features [2] made available via maven repos (rather than http urls). The main problem with this is not ECF bundles, but rather there are 4 equinox bundles that we depend upon (see [3]), and so far, Equinox has not made those bundles available via a Maven repository. ÂThere is talk on the Equinox mailing list about making their bundles available via a maven repository, and possibly contributing to Maven central, but so far it hasn't been done.

What do people with more knowledge of Maven, tycho, etc think we should do to aid the use of ECF remote services on Karaf? ÂFor example, s it possible (e.g with Tycho) to create a maven repo that has these non-ECF bundles in it (temporarily?).
