Develop OSGi Bundles and Applications Within Eclipse

Jessica Thornsby

New, Bnd-based Eclipse development tool for building OSGi bundles and apps.

Bndtools is a new, Eclipse-based development
environment for OSGi bundles and applications. It is based on the
Bnd bundle tool.

Bndtools aims to encourage OSGi best practices, to integrate
with offline build tools and users of other IDEs, and to produce
accurate bundle metadata to maximise re-usability. It features a
rich forms-style editor for Bnd descriptor files, and pluggable
repositories for managing your OSGi bundles. It also integrates Bnd
into Eclipse incremental builds, so when a Java class is compiled
by JDT, Bnd will produce a bundle.

It can be downloaded from github.
