Re: [equinox-dev] bundle builds using Maven

It's not just the manifest. Generally PDE expects all non-classpath
entries (anything you'd access via Bundle.getEntry and not via
getResource) to be relative to the root of your project. This is
because when running in the IDE, Eclipse tries to use the project
itself as a bundle (with some hacks to allow classes to be loaded from
the right places).

The build.properties file contains the configuration for what gets
included into the bundle jar. I've written an alternative to the
maven-jar-plugin that uses this information to build bundles in Maven.

Another issue is when you have embedded jars in your bundles. You
can't use these as ordinary dependencies with the normal
maven-compiler-plugin. I also wrote a maven-osgi-compiler-plugin that
calculates classpaths based on the manifests using the equinox
resolver.

Both are available here http://svn.codehaus.org/m2eclipse/tycho/trunk/
although it could use some documentation...

right, but you can say maven to generate the manifest where PDE
expects it ${basedir}/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
