I tried dling the RCP for 3.3 and following the instructions given
below. The framework seems to start but then it abruptly quits without
my being able to enter anything into the console's prompt.
there are no log files generated in the configuration directory so i am
unable to see if there's an error.
i tried running it with the "-debug" option and it all seems to load
with no exceptions. i get "Time to load bundles: xx" and then the
prompt, then a second later it just quits.
i've tried running this with the eclipse.exe executable and the same
thing happens, only, as expected, the executable spawns a new console
window ... at least under win32 this is the case.
any help is appreciated. my goal is to get a minimal version of the
framework running because i would like to investigate porting an
instrument control server onto the osgi framework. the instruments are
for carbon vapor deposition nanotube synthesis systems. the reason i
mention this is that if anyone has had any experience with instrument
control and automation in a lab environment using osgi i'd like to hear
about it, and specifically, i'd like to hear about how well device
management and the concept of devices maps to instruments like mass flow
controllers, pressure pumps, heating elements, io boards, etc over
serial, modbus, and ethernet channels.
