Subject updating bundle-target mapping
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2011 14:35:55 GMT
Hello everybody,

while working on an IDE for Apache ACE (see, we ran into an 
interesting issue: We are able to build a bundle from its Eclipse PDE 
project, and store the resulting new bundle version into ACE repository 
(server started off Eclipse). Then we successfully update the 
bundle-feature-distibution mapping and distribution-target mapping by 
manipulating the corresponding xml config files, but are unable to find 
a way to programmatically update the bundle-target mapping config which 
is (strangely?) also needed. The new version of the bundle therefore 
cannot be automatically pushed to a configured target.

(In other words, we are able to modify these ...
... but don't know how to modify this

Currently therefore we resorted to a "solution" to bring up a popup 
window in Eclipse, instructing the user to run the Web UI and click 
"retrieve" and "store" so as to update the bundle-target mapping.

Surely there must be a better way :) or at least so we think (a "hidden" 
API or at least a well-defined URL on the repo/server). Could someone 
enlighten us please?


PS: If you think an ACE IDE could be helpful to you, please feel free to 
try it; we need feedback and ideas for its further evolution.
