[equinox-dev] Re: Integrating with an external build system (Ant, Maven, etc.)

Hi!

It's interesting how things fall together. :)

There was a long discussion last week about the same topic on the
pde-build-dev mailing linst, which IMHO seems more on-topic for this
then the equinox-dev list that is supposed for discussions about
developing Equinox.

AFAIK the answer in this thread was that the Maven2 POM is not as
pluggable yet. OSGi would need a plug-in that would resolve the
dependencies dynamically based on the manifests and the available bundles.
