OSGi Metadata for jcommon jars?

Postby energyk » Mon Oct 17, 2016 8:52 pm


To whom would I need to talk to in order to get OSGi metadata added to jcommon builds. This can be achieved quite easily by using aqute bnd[1]. Here is an example how it's done for the Fedora builds:

Code: Select all
# Convert regular jar to OSGi bundle
java -jar someclasspath-to-add-aqute wrap jcommon.jar

This would produce a file called jcommon.bar which is the same jar, but also has some basic OSGi metadata. Do you think that would be possible to add to your build?

Thanks a lot!

Do you have a bit more information about this? I don't know much at all about OSGi. Do you need this just for Common or also the other projects such as JFreeChart, Orson Charts, JFreeSVG, FXGraphics2D and OrsonPDF? Is there a Maven plugin that can add the metadata?
