Re: [tycho-user] Resolution of packages containing "impl" in their names

Cristiano -

If you are trying to OSGi-ify a third-party library (TPL), I've had a lot of success with a "wrapper" jar that contains the raw TPL jar as an embedded member. 

One of the more complex examples is this OSGi bundling for JOGL:

By tweaking the Export-Package element, it is possible to expose all sort of internal packages.

Let me know if you have any questions.

  Il looks like Tycho has problems resolving the imports from bundles exporting packages which contain "impl" in their names.

I understand that importing "impl" or "internal" packages is a bad idea and that other plugins (e.g. maven-bundle-plugin) by default don't export these packages but I'm trying to OSGi-fy an existing third party library and I need to import all of it's packages in another bundle.

Tycho complains (only) on these packages:

Resolution errors:
   Bundle org.eclipse.kura.protocol.zigbee - Missing Constraint: Import-Package: org.bubblecloud.zigbee.api.cluster.impl.api.core; version="2.0.3.SNAPSHOT"
   Bundle org.eclipse.kura.protocol.zigbee - Missing Constraint: Import-Package:; version="2.0.3.SNAPSHOT"

Note that the OSGi-fied library exports the packages in the MANIFEST, for example:;x-internal:=false;version="2.0.3.SNAPSHOT"

I had to add the "x-internal:=false" to suppress Eclipse "Access restriction" errors.

The above happens with Tycho 0.20 and 0.24.

Is there something else I could try before giving up and embedding the third party jar to the lib/ directory of my bundle?

Is this behavior (filtering "impl" packages) documented anywhere?
