README bnd

bnd is a swiss army knife for OSGi, it creates manifest headers for you based on analyzing the class code, it verifies your settings, it manages project dependencies, gives you quote of the day, diffs jars, and much more.

The information about bnd can be found at http://www.aQute.biz/Bnd

Repository

The git repository contains all code. It contains the following projects:

  • aQute.libg - Library to be statically linked (Conditional-Package)
  • biz.aQute.bnd - A command line utility and ant plugin
  • biz.aQute.bndlib - The core library
  • biz.aQute.bndlib.tests - Tests for the core library
  • biz.aQute.jpm - Just another package manager for Java
  • biz.aQute.junit - Junit tester (runs on Java 1.4)
  • biz.aQute.launcher - Launcher (runs on Java 1.4)
  • biz.aQute.repository - Different repos with OBR
  • biz.aQute.resolve - OBR Resolver
  • cnf - Configuration directory
  • demo - Used in testing
  • dist - Contains the distribution after 'gradle'
  • osgi.r5 - OSGi jars without all dependencies

License

All code is Apache 2.0 Licensed so you can do what you want with the source code.

API

Though I am usually pretty good at backward compatibility, there is no guarantee. This is an unpaid project and one of the most annoying thing of work is being backward compatible on the Java API when you know a better way to do it. Properties will be backward compatible if there is any possibility. So be aware, its ok to use this package but do not complain if new releases require some work.

If you're building a tool with a general audience, e.g. bndtools, that includes bnd for a general audience I would appreciate if you got in touch with me so I can keep in touch. I am always interested in ideas.

Eclipse

bndtools is the development environment of bnd. An earlier Eclipse plugin in bnd is no longer available.

Building

Gradle is used to build bnd. The workspace root has a build.gradle file that builds all projects in proper order.

./gradlew - Assembles, tests and releases the projects into dist/bundles
./gradlew :dist:build - Assembles and tests the projects
./gradlew :dist:index - Assembles and releases the projects into dist/bundles

The workspace root includes the gradle wrapper, gradlew, command.

CloudBees Build Status Travis CI Build Status

Release

bnd is continuously built and released on CloudBees.

Built on DEV@cloud
