Other Information

  • The Eclipse SDK includes some very sophisticated tooling for defining, developing, debugging, building and deploying bundles. To use this tooling run the SDK and mentally replace the word "Plugin" with "Bundle" in all the menu/wizard entries. For example, File > New > Plugin Project creates a project suitable for coding OSGi bundles. The "Plugin Editor" is really a bundle editor with some extra support for Eclipse constructs such as the Extension registry.
