How to use json-path as bundle embeded jars?

DavidZhang

Does anyone has an osgi service bundle that include a few dependency jar files? I want to use json-path in my osgi bundle, however, json-path need a few maven dependencies: json-smart, asm, etc. I tried to convert each jar as separate osgi bundle jar or embed all the jars in my bundle, none of them is an easy task and no working solutions. How you guys embed the dependency jars in the osgi bundle? Why these kind of simple stuff in maven and npm is so difficult and messy in osgi? in maven and npm, it is so straightforward to include as much as needed utility jar or npm module. That's why the osgi concept is dying except inside AEM? ^_^

Finally, I make the json-path works in my workflow steps osgi bundle. It's hell lots of work. You need to put all your maven dependencies in pom.xml, even it is explicitly referred. then you need to export all the packages felix need to lookup, and put the maven bundles in the build list:

<plugin>
<groupId>org.apache.felix</groupId>
<artifactId>maven-bundle-plugin</artifactId>
<version>5.1.2</version>
<extensions>true</extensions>
<configuration>

<instructions>
<Export-Package>net.minidev.asm;version="2.4.7", org.apache.tapestry5.json, org.codehaus.jettison.json;version="1.4.1"</Export-Package>
<Embed-Dependency>
json-path;
json-smart;
accessors-smart;
asm;
org.apache.tapestry5.json;
jettison;
</Embed-Dependency>
<Embed-Transitive>true</Embed-Transitive>
</instructions>
</configuration>
</plugin>

All I need is a json-path dependency in maven, but see how many things I need to configure just to resolve the class path issue.
