Can Tycho build a regular OSGi application that is not an Eclipse RCP application?
I could be going at this wrong, actually, so I'll tell you what I'm doing. I've created an OSGi application that uses Jersey to provide a RESTful web service and certain pieces of Eclipse to handle workspaces and the file system for storing user files. It launches as a regular OSGi application, not an Eclipse application. The PDE product file launches the server fine, but Tycho can't build it and it throws an IOException stating that the zip file can not be empty and finally crashes by saying that there was nothing to install.
