Rapid OSGi development : Pax-Construct 2 goes GA

I've just made the new version of Pax-Construct generally available on the OPS4J repository:

detailed documentation for the scripts and Maven2 plugins can be found on the following site:

including an example of using Pax-Construct to assemble and deploy Spring Dynamic Modules!

Other noteworthy features:

  • much simpler project layout - you can even create standalone bundle POMs
  • transitive wrapping of third-party jars and their dependencies
  • transitive importing of OSGi bundles and their bundle dependencies
  • new scripts to help move bundles around the project
  • supports the latest release of Pax-Runner!
I'm away in Penang for the next few days, but will be back soon to answer questions and provide many more examples. In the meantime, feel free to comment on the wiki, or raise issues on JIRA :)
