[equinox-dev] FW: Debugging Equinox bundles (not in Eclipse)

I’m trying to start equinox and one bundle in an IDE (but not Eclipse, where I know the support is built in) using the following code:


public class StartEquinox {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        try {

            BundleContext bc = EclipseStarter.startup(new String[]{"-console"}, null);

            InputStream is = new FileInputStream("./myfirstbundle/myfirstbundle.jar");

            bc.installBundle("myfirstbundle ", is).start();

        } catch (Exception e) {







What I get is a stack trace:


org.osgi.framework.BundleException: The activator com.stentra.myfirstbundle.Activator for bundle myfirstbundle is invalid

            at org.eclipse.osgi.framework.internal.core.AbstractBundle.loadBundleActivator(AbstractBundle.java:141)

            at org.eclipse.osgi.framework.internal.core.BundleContextImpl.start(BundleContextImpl.java:962)


Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/osgi/framework/BundleActivator


Using  java –jar <equinox.jar> and intalling stuff manually works fine.


So presumably there is some classloader type issues here. Is there any easy way round this?


Thanks in advance.
