Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Can Orbit also host "p2-ified" OSGi bundles from Maven?

Wouldn't it be great if the ".target" platform file would allow adding Maven repositories and GAV entries below them?!

That way it would be possible to simple reference specific artifacts from Maven central. True, only explicitly named artifacts would be found, there would be no P2 resolver magic. But I think it would help a lot!

It probably only conflicts with the "need it soon" requirement ;-)

Hi all,

Some OSGi bundles are existing on Maven, great. Tycho is able to consume them directly with the "pomDependencies=consider" option, great too.
However, this pomDependencies=consider doesn't have an equivalent in PDE target-platform like p2 has. So it makes that using directly OSGi bundles from Maven make it tricky to provide a portable target platform definition (.target file).
Do you think it would make sense for Orbit to also host those external bundles, without rebuilding them, and pusblish them as p2 artifacts? I'll probably need it soon for GSon 2.5.0.
