The site contains:
- OSGi Facet Feature
- WAR Products Core Feature
- WAR Products Core Feature provides WAR deployment for Equinox based applications
- OSGi Facet Feature introduces:
- A new facet "OSGi Bundle" for Dynamic Web, JPA and Utility projects.
- Wizard for converting WTP standard projects to OSGi Enterprise bundle projects:
- Dynamic Web projects to Web Application Bundle projects
- JPA projects to Persistent Bundle projects
- Utility projects and simple Java projects to OSGi Bundle projects
- Both options modify project's MANIFEST.MF in order to become a valid OSGi bundle.
The facet may be enabled during project creation or after that from Properties page of the project. The wizard is available from project's context menu Configure > Convert to OSGi Bundle Projects...
