Bndtools and Maven: A brave new world

The Bndtools project is the foremost IDE for OSGi development, with a powerful workspace model and interactive debug sessions. Historically Bndtools has been opinionated (and restrictive) about how you build your workspace, but with the new releases of bnd and Bndtools 3.4.0 things have changed dramatically.

Using the new Maven plugins from the bnd project you can now get all the bnd goodness you know and love when using Maven, and when using Bndtools you still get incremental building and interactive debug! This talk will walk you through the new Maven plugins from bnd, and how to get the most out of your new favourite IDE.

A journey through Bndtools for PDE users

You may know the story: you develop OSGi applications with PDE and you are willing to give Bnd a try, but you can't find access to the different concepts they are using. The reasons to change, can be plenty and the hazards on the way as well. Here you will get a quick view in the world of Bnd with dos and don'ts and an idea on how to migrate your project.
