Pinned topic WAS Liberty Profile 8.5 OSGI EE Maven support

‏2013-01-25T11:52:28Z |
Hi.
I was wondering whether a Maven pom.xml driven OSGI EE module is currently possible such that the OSGI application can be built and tested within the Eclipse/RAD tooling as well as external to it via a Maven build process?
For example are there techniques or support for ...
-An OSGI Maven Archetype (or Eclipse Wizard) for building an Liberty Profile OSGI EE application that includes a default pom.xml?
-An extension of M2E-WTP (or alike) to cater for Eclipse workspace synchronisation between OSGI workspace and Maven artifacts?

Cheers.

    The support the you are asking for is not available in a product that IBM ships.
    But it well aligns with our priorities.
    We are currently investigating support for Maven pom.xml first OSGi modules.

      Appreciate the nicely worded response. It convinced me to be patient.
      I had a quick look at what was rolled into the latest (11-Feb-2013) WDT beta and it looks like it addresses the original posts objective.
      This should facilitate improved automation and continuous delivery aspects between OSGI bundles and Liberty runtimes across environments so thanks for the neat feature!

      Cheers.

        Hi,

        A bit off-topic, but couldn't resist...

        The so-well-worded question and the response(s) improved my English so much that just for this very exact purpose (mastering English) I'll keep lurking here a bit longer :-) Thank you!

        Jacek
