Re: [tycho-user] Release OSGi bundles/projects with Tycho

Your release version (2.0.0) is older than your snapshot versions
( according to OSGi version comparison rules.

Hello Andreas,

thank you very much for your answer. Unfortunately, I'm not
completely sure if I understood the reasoning for NOT switching to
non-SNAPSHOT versions for bundles and features...

Let's assume, I have a project consisting of one parent POM project
(packaging type "pom"), a number of bundles (packaging type
"eclipse-plugin"), a number of features (packaging type
"eclipse-feature"), and a number of product projects (packaging type
"eclipse-repository"). When creating a release, I first create a
branch. In that branch, I switch ALL versions from let's say
2.0.0-SNAPSHOT (and 2.0.0.qualifier respectively) to 2.0.0. Then I
tag that branch and build my release from it. On the TRUNK, I switch
ALL versions to 2.1.0-SNAPSHOT as 2.1.0 will be the new version in
the future. What exactly is now the problem with the ordering
difference between OSGi-land and Maven-land?

Thanks for your clarification ;-).

Betreff: Re: [tycho-user] Release OSGi bundles/projects with Tycho

Hi Timo,

for pure Maven projects, the maven-release-plugin allows for creating
releases of those projects including creation of SVN tags and version
bumping. Is there any similar approach within Tycho for OSGi
bundles/projects? I found some hints on [1] and [2], but those are
already some years old and do not seem to be very active recently...

I am not aware of anything besides the tycho-versions-plugin [1]. The tricky part is that you don't want to switch to non-SNAPSHOT versions for bundles and features (as 2.0.5 comes before 2.0.5.qualifer in OSGi-land but after 2.0.5-SNAPSHOT in Maven-land). On the other hand, parent POMs or eclipse-repository artifacts do deserve a non-SNAPSHOT version.

If you group them by using directories like plugins, tests, and features, this is quite easy to do on the shell. Here's what I do when releasing Eclipse Code Recommenders, for example [2,3]:

export RELEASE=2.0.5
export NEXT=2.0.6
mvn clean org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version
-Dproperties=recommenders-version -DnewVersion=${RELEASE} # Revert
bundles and features to .qualifer mvn
org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version -Dartifacts=$(basename plugins/*/ tests/*/ features/*/ | paste -sd "," - ) -DnewVersion=${RELEASE}-SNAPSHOT git commit -a -m "[releng] ${RELEASE}"
git checkout HEAD^ -- '*'
mvn clean org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version
-Dproperties=recommenders-version -DnewVersion=${NEXT}-SNAPSHOT git commit -a -m "[releng] ${NEXT}-SNAPSHOT"

Hope that helps.
