Re: [eclipselink-dev] osgi persistence.xml hack

What should I expect to see when I run the example projects in eclipse. At the moment, seem to activate for me, but I do not get any kind of UI or feedback. Is that expected?

Unless you have an osgi project that hits a db right now that you can
create a product for and export from the pde then i'm not sure you'll
be able to recreate it. I would do it myself with the comics crud
example I submmited, but I switched dev boxes recently and don't have
the comics derby db handy right now, otherwise i'd just do it. I think
i'll be able to do it tommorow though.

The bug is here:

You could try checking out that project get it running in eclipse,
then creating a product for it, exporting it as an exe and see if it

Let me know if that makes sense.

At the moment, my attempt at recreation is through running equinox
standalone, importing all the required bundles and starting my application.
 That does not seem to be sufficient.  I'll try some different strategies to
see if I can recreate. Anything you can let me know that will help recreate
will be helpful.

I'll try to duplicate our issue with the comics example I checked in,
then it'll be easier for you to dup, i'll check back in later.

Hi Tim,

 We are now creating plugins as part of our build.  I was unable to
the issue you mention below with those plug-ins.  I am wondering if you
still get it with those plugins.

 The most recent plugins are published with our nightly builds.  Just
for: for last night's build

Note: There is an issue with the ant plug-in found in the zip file right
now, so you will likely have to export that file from our Eclispe PDE
project for now.

HI devs!

After mucking around trying to get OSGi EclipseLink to work _outside_
of eclipse (an exported eclipse product),  We've finally gotten it to

in the processPersistenceArchive method

Instead of getting the XML stream from the "Archive" class like:
InputStream pxmlStream = archive.getEntry("META-INF/persistence.xml");

-- which doesn't work for some reason.

You can instead use the classLoader's getResourceAsStream method like

InputStream pxmlStream =

I'm not exactly sure why the Archive class stuff doesn't work outside
of eclipse, since the getResources() call on the classLoader seems to
work fine, but I thought someone might be interested in this work

As an aside -- I think you might want to look at testing outside of
eclipse, since apparently osgi in and outside of eclipse are two
different animals.
