Re: [equinox-dev] Testing OSGI Bundles with JUnit

Have you had a look at pax exam
(http://wiki.ops4j.org/display/paxexam/Pax+Exam) ?

It actually lets you write Junit Tests in OSGi Framework independent way.
You finally wrap your test in a test probe bundle (built on the fly),
start your target framework (equinox in this case), provision it with
you setup (extra bundles), and thats about it.

IF you use PDE (because you pointed to the fact you are using eclipse
a couple of times):
Without external means like maven you probably end up re-specifiying
all your dependencies again just for test setup.

Tell us if you do or not as it might help us a lot to get you started
with pax exam.

Finally, in exam you end up inside an isolated vm process running just
your test vm with your test framework
(Equinox,Felix,Knopflerfish,Concierge, all recent versions at you
fingertipps) exactly as specified. From there you (currently) get the
(real!) bundleContext from where you probably get any service you
