Alasdair Nottingham:Yesterday I blogged on how to get the free OSGi Applications tools from IBM Rational working on Eclipse 3.6 Classic. Having got the tools created the next step is to define a target platform. A target platform is the set of bundles you want to build and run your application with. Since Eclipse is a big OSGi application it already comes with a built in target platform for developing eclipse plugins. Since we are trying to create an enterprise OSGi application this isn't any good. We need a new one, but the tools don't come with one for free. In this post I will go through the steps involved in setting up a target platform for developing OSGi applications.
