Bnd is the tool that is meant to build OSGi applications. It is used in Maven Tycho, the Maven-Bundle-Plugin or in the new Eclipse PDE. But it also has a full Eclipse IDE Integration as well as support for Maven2Eclipse.
This talk will give you a "How to start" walk through bndtools. We will start with a first project and will explain the ideas behind. You will learn how bndtoolsworks compared to the Eclipse PDE and we will also take look into the Maven and Gradle integration.
The project templates and bnd-libraries are a big helper, when you are new with Bndtools. We will explain how to use them and also launching and exporting your application.
Finally you will see how easy it is to build an OSGi application from scratch.
