Libra/User Guide


The Libra features can be installed from the p2 repository of the Indigo Simultaenous Release (since Indigo M6). As a prerequisite you may install Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.

The update site contains:

  • OSGi Bundle Facet feature that introduces:
    1. A new facet OSGi Bundle for Dynamic Web, JPA and Utility projects.
    2. 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 the project creation or after that from the Properties page of the project. The wizard is available from project's context menu Configure > Convert to OSGi Bundle Projects...

Note that you may need to adjust your target platform accordingly.
