bnd-export-maven-plugin

The bnd-export-maven-plugin is a bnd based plugin to export bndrun files.

What does the bnd-export-maven-plugin do?

Point the plugin to a bndrun file in the same project. It will export a runnable jar.

    <plugin>
        <groupId>biz.aQute.bnd</groupId>
        <artifactId>bnd-export-maven-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>${bnd.version}</version>
        <configuration>
            <failOnChanges>false</failOnChanges>
            <bndruns>
                <bndrun>mylaunch.bndrun</bndrun>
            </bndruns>
        </configuration>
        <executions>
            <execution>
                <goals>
                    <goal>export</goal>
                </goals>
            </execution>
        </executions>
    </plugin>

Here's an example setting the bundles used for resolution.

    ...
    <configuration>
        ...
        <bundles>
            <bundle>bundles/org.apache.felix.eventadmin-1.4.8.jar</bundle>
            <bundle>bundles/org.apache.felix.framework-5.4.0.jar</bundle>
        </bundles>
    </configuration>
    ...

Bndrun Details Inferred from Maven

The -runee and -runrequires values can be inferred from the maven project as follows:

  • -runee, if omitted from the bndrun file, will be inferred from the <target> configuration of maven-compiler-plugin
  • -runrequires, if omitted from the bndrun file, will be inferred from the project's artifactId and applied as osgi.identity;filter:='(osgi.identity=<artifactId>)', if the project packaging is jar or war and the project has the bnd-maven-plugin

Implicit Repository

An implicit repository containing the project artifact and project dependencies (as defined through the configuration of bundles, scopes, useMavenDependencies and includeDependencyManagement) is created and added when this plugin is executed.

Configuration Properties

Configuration Property Description
bndruns Can contain bndrun child elements naming a bndrun file to export. You can also specify include and exclude child elements using Ant-style globs to specify bndrun files. These are relative to the ${project.basedir} directory. Defaults to <include>*.bndrun</include>.
targetDir The director into which to export the result. Defaults to ${project.build.directory}.
resolve Whether to resolve the -runbundles required for a valid runtime. Defaults to false.
failOnChanges Whether to fail the build if any change in the resolved -runbundles is discovered. Defaults to true.
exporter The name of the exporter plugin to use. Bnd has two built-in exporter plugins. bnd.executablejar exports an executable jar and bnd.runbundles exports the -runbundles files. Default to bnd.executablejar.
bundles A collection of files to include in the implicit repository. Can contain bundle child elements specifying the path to a bundle. These can be absolute paths. You can also specify include and exclude child elements using Ant-style globs to specify bundles. These are relative to the ${project.basedir} directory. Defaults to dependencies in the scopes specified by the scopes property, plus the current artifact (if any and useMavenDependencies is true).
useMavenDependencies If true, adds the project dependencies subject to scopes to the collection of files to include in the implicit repository. Defaults to true.
attach If true then if the exported generates a jar file, the jar file will be attached as an output of the current artifact. Defaults to true.
reportOptional If true, resolution failure reports (see resolve) will include optional requirements. Defaults to true.
scopes Specify from which scopes to collect dependencies. Defaults to compile, runtime. Override with property bnd.export.scopes.
includeDependencyManagement Include <dependencyManagement> subject to scopes when collecting files to include in the implicit repository. Defaults to false. Override with property bnd.export.include.dependency.management.
skip Skip the project. Defaults to false. Override with property bnd.export.skip.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
