Subject Re: OSGi R5 support in Apache Archiva
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2019 11:18:59 GMT

OSGi R5 introduced a repository format that includes metadata about OSGi 
bundles that enables the OSGi resolver to assess which bundles are 
needed to fulfill the requirements you give it. That index can be 
generated based on the available bundles. Since Archiva provides a Maven 
repository, it would be very convenient if that index could be 
automatically generated by Archiva so that it can be used during 
development and production. We currently use Package Drone 
( for that, but since we 
encountered a problem that really limits us and development of Package 
Drone has more or less halted. Therefore I am looking around for an 
alternative. If you need more information, please ask.

Kind regards,
