Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-1512) enhancement: add self to generated feature in "features-generate-descriptor" goal
Date Fri, 04 Oct 2013 15:57:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1512?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13786275#comment-13786275

Richard Senior commented on KARAF-1512:
---------------------------------------

The feature descriptor, and the process of deploying features is more powerful than that used
to deploy individual bundles.

So for example, in the OSGi manifest you might be specifying a version range for a dependency.
If you deploy the bundle then you have no real control over exactly which version is pulled
down from Nexus.
If your POM build created a features xml for your bundle, you could fix the exact version
of each dependency and it's start level. Which leads me on.. I notice that if you do specify
a version range in your maven dependencies, then the generated features XML contains multiple
bundle declarations for that dependency. There should be a way (in the goal config in the
POM) of fixing the exact values for each dependency that is placed in the features XML.. etc.

> When generating features in a pom that also creates a bundle artifact of it's own, it
would be useful for that generated feature XML to include the project's bundle in the list
of bundles for the purposes of publishing.
