Subject Re: Updated CMake bundle and deploy commands
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2016 15:57:07 GMT
Hi Pepijn,

I've just now, yesterday, updated GIT - and took time to checkout new
version of CELIX.
Nothing was building nor working :D So that is a good start - a lot of changes.

I think I am more-or-less clear on all the changes done, but some are
still getting my head knocking against my desk.

As I did not find answer in the current source tree or documentation,
can be I was sloppy, but. Could you be kind to help me about a bit.

So I had a bundle, that has CMake definition like this:


Where did the DIRECTORIES command/directive move to? I saw: add_files,
but not directories.
I looked at the mongoose example, but - I am not able to get it
working, as it looks like it is also missing this root directory in
the bundle entry set.

I build CELIX and Mongoose example like this:

git clone https://github.com/apache/celix.git
git checkout develop

mkdir build && cd build
-DJAR_COMMAND=/opt/jdk1.8/bin/jar -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/celix/

make all

make deploy

cd deploy/mongoose_deploy

$ sh ./run.sh
-> entry (null)
Launcher: Framework Started
INFO: FRAMEWORK: Start shutdownthread


Segmentation fault (core dumped)
$ tree .cache/bundle4/
├── bundle.id
├── bundle.lastmodified
├── bundle.location
└── version0.0
    ├── libmongoose.so.0
    ├── META-INF
    │   └── MANIFEST.MF
    └── revision.location

2 directories, 6 files

Did I miss something or is this example not correct? It looks like it
is missing something as the startup fails and there is no response on
port 8081.

Another problem I have, and also failed to find appropriate replacement is:


With what is the command IMPORT_LIBRARIES replaced? Also for this I
did not find working replacement.

For other changes it was well documented and working as advertised.

I've tried master and develop branch from GitHub GIT repository.

I've also not tried the celix bootstrap project, but it looks really
interesting. +1 for it.

Kind Regards,
