[dsdp-tm-dev] RE: rxtx eclipse bundle

Hello Dmitry,
 
I think we will never be able to include the rxtx bundles on the
Eclipse CVS repository, since it's license (LGPL) is not
compatbile with the EPL.
 
What we are working on, is getting the rxtx maintainers to
serve an additional Eclipse Update Site from their servers.
They have basically agreed doing so, right now it is only
pending some re-wording and clarification on their license
text.
 
Do you need an rxtx eclipse bundle urgently, or are you ok
with waiting another month or so till this is officially served
from rxtx.org ? Remember that for now, you can just install
RXTX as a JVM extension (java/lib/ext and java/bin) and it
will work when you specify
   eclipse-BuddyPolicy:ext
in the Eclipse Manifest.mf. Look at the
   org.eclipse.tm.terminal.serial/META-INF/Manifest.mf
for reference.

Cheers,

Subject: rxtx eclipse bundle


Hello, Martin!

My name is Dmitry, I am working in the TEC-IT Moscow (Russia) division of Festo Inc. (http://www.festo.com) .

Now we are working on prototype of a Festo device platform on Eclipse RCP. This plug-in based tool allows to work with Festo devices through serial port mainly. We study source code of the Eclipse Target Management / RSE project and we shall use it probably.

But now we are working above creating the rxtx 2.1-7 eclipse bundle. In your recent post (http://mailman.qbang.org/pipermail/rxtx/Week-of-Mon-20070129/848211.html) you spoke about them but in the CVS repository (dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/dsdp/) rxtx bundle isn't presented. When it will be create or where it is possible to look it?
