Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3167) Make lucene/solr a OSGI bundle through Ant
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2012 21:33:47 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3167:

This seems like a significantly more complicated issue then than just modifying the ant build
to add metadata.
Maybe this build step should be addressed first (so someone can optionally do it with ant
if they want), just like maven
and leave the thornier back compat issue for another issue.

>From this PDF it seems OSGI imposes its own backwards compatibility policy that conflicts
with ours, and would
be very difficult to maintain and detect if they were correct.

I don't see why this would be useful at all: in basically every release binary compatibility
is usually
broken in some way (and even if its not technically broken, maybe a methods behavior changes
or something
like). Different lucene modules depend on each other and are only tested with the same version:
its not tested to use lucene-foobar-3.2.jar with a lucene-core-3.1.jar.

So the versioning in that whitepaper doesn't make much sense: I think if we are going to put
OSGI information
in the packages we should simply bump the major version for every release: even bugfix releases.

> We need to make a bundle thriugh Ant, so the binary can be published and no more need
the download of the sources. Actually to get a OSGI bundle we need to use maven tools and
build the sources. Here the reference for the creation of the OSGI bundle through Maven:
