Netbeans tools for standalone Fuji/OSGi runtimes
By schikkala on Aug 21, 2008
Do you want to manage OSGi runtime from Netbeans? I have just created a netbeans plugin that can add a node in the services tab in netbeans to manage either Felix or Equinox OSGi runtimes. From this node, you can start, stop OSGi runtime, install and manage(view, start, stop, uninstall) OSGi bundles in the runtime using its command line interface from the netbeans output window. Of course, this plugin is a preview for the set of Netbeans tools we are providing for Project Fuji and will be available as part of that project. So, by adding JBI framework bundle and the fuji admin jmx bundle to the OSGi runtime, you can even manage the runtime using it's explorer view and the actions provided on the instance nodes.
When you add the JBI framework bundle from Project Fuji to the OSGi runtime, you have Fuji runtime which provides you JBI environment on OSGi platform where you can install/deploy JBI components and service assemblies that constitute your integration application as a set of OSGi bundles.
So, how do you get the Standalone Fuji runtime which is a OSGi runtime(Felix or Equinox) + JBI Framework OSGi bundle?
