Re: [jetty-users] Installing Jetty in a Target- Can't resolve javax.el

Correction: I downloaded the javax.e1-3.0.0 jar. I mistakenly identified it as the "jetty 3.0.0" jar.

I have an RCP app that uses the jetty websocket client. It's been working fine with the jetty bundles packaged along with the code I developed, because I wasn't successful at getting them installed in my RCP target. Now I took the time to give it my best effort, and after hours of trying I reached a dead end.

I read in this post ( that with the later versions of Jetty (I'm using 9.2.5) the required version of some dependencies are not included in equinox and also not available from orbit, so I need to download them myself and install them. I thought I did that correctly, but jetty is not satisfied.

When I try to resolve my target with the jetty bundles included, it fails with this message:

org.eclipse.jetty.osgi.boot.jsop 9.2.5.v20141112 requires 'package javax.el [3.0.0,3.1.0)' but it could not be found.

So I downloaded the jetty 3.0.0 jar which contains package javax.el. I created a plug-in from this jar file, and named it javax.el with version 3.0.0. I exported the package javax.el on the run tab, and also tried specifying the package version as 3.0.0.

Then I added a location to my target, pointing it at the folder which contains the jetty plug-in I created. When I look at the content tab of the target editor, I see see my plug-in there and it's selected.

But I continue to get the same message in the target editor when I try to resolve the target. I believe I've successfully added the bundle I created to my target, but it's a package dependency that is failing. Am I supposed to do something further to make that package available? I don't know anything to do other than to export it. Are there other strategies I can use to get jetty working in my target? I don't find any useful discussion of people doing this when I searched the Internet, but surely I'm not the only one who is trying to use jetty in an RCP target.
