Support for M2E workspace resolution via reference: protocol

    Details

      Description

      Eclipse M2E plugin provides a 'workspace resolution' mode where Maven projects in Eclipse workspace are provided as workspace repository which takes precedence over other repositories.

      This leads to situation where artifact file isn't necessarily yet - depending on Mavens current lifecycle phase - provided as .jar but instead as directory pointing to project's output directory.

      <features xmlns="http://karaf.apache.org/xmlns/features/v1.0.0" name="example">
          <feature name="example" description="example">
              <bundle>mvn:com/example/dependency/1.0.0</bundle>
              ...
              <bundle>mvn:com/example/project/0.0.1-SNAPSHOT</bundle>
              ...
          </feature>
      </features>
      

      The patches provided in this issue not only takes care of treating directories as exploded .jar files (common approach) but also provisions them with reference: protocol that most of the OSGi frameworks understand as direct filesystem references thus allowing exploded .jars to be installed.

      <features xmlns="http://karaf.apache.org/xmlns/features/v1.0.0" name="example">
          <feature name="example" description="example">
              <bundle>mvn:com/example/dependency/1.0.0</bundle>
              ...
              <bundle>reference:file:/~/workspace/example-project/classes/</bundle>
              ...
          </feature>
      </features>
      

      Without intermediate round-trip via OSGi framework's bundle cache the 'workspace resolution' mode now offers also hot code replacement.
