Re: [tycho-user] m2e PDE extension and Tycho

Hi Lars,

if you provide a dependency scope, see [1] for a screenshot, dependencies are included for the selected artifact.

This simply adds all dependencies as individual bundles, my goal for the long-term is that this will also generate an appropriate feature, then even artifacts of type pom (that are often used to pull in a bunch of related dependencies) can be used.

But as there is currently no funding for this feature from any of my customers I can't give a schedule for this, so the whole maven integration story is more personal concern as these round-trips as you described has often bugged me in the past while developing with PDE/Tycho :-)

Thanks Christoph for enabling (finally) Eclipse developers to consume
Maven libs without hassle. Once this is rounded up, it will finally be
possible to develop Eclipse apps similar to other Maven or Gradle
projects without the "convert JAR to OSGi somehow -> put into a p2
update site -> update your target platform" circle.

Does this already resolve dependencies of the Maven artifacts? So far
I'm using the bnd plug-in in Gradle which will automatically pull also
dependencies of the referred library. I described that here:

Best regards, Lars

Hi Lars,

I'm glad you liked it, the m2e feature is a bit experimental atm and
your right this is currently not (yet) supported, so feedback / testing
is welcome.

I hope I'll be able to add support for this hopefully in Tycho 2.2.0
release, of course feel free to also add an enhancement request to the
bug-tracker to express interest in this feature :-)

At the moment you can use the tycho counter-part "wrapAsBundle" with
maven dependencies (also relative new feature that could need some
deeper inspection) added to the pom but be aware that the naming scheme
is a bit different.

I'm trying to use the new m2e PDE extension for accessing Maven
central artifacts and converting them, if necessary, directly into
OSGi bundles.

Super cool! Works great in the IDE AFAICS.

Unfortunately this seems not directly support in Tycho 2.1.0, I get
the following warning / error:

[WARNING] Target location type 'Maven' is not supported and the
library is not found.

I know that Tycho 2.1.0 also added support for accessing Maven
central. Do I have to configure this independently? Or can the
target-platform setup be re-used by Tycho?

Best regards, Lars
