Hello @Prashanth_02a ,

For most of the third-party bundles adding maven dependency in main pom.xml and core pom.xml the dependency bundle should be resolved.

However sometimes for some dependencies, the process is not done automatically. In that case, you need to make it OSGI-ready and embed the dependency. To do this you can follow this documentation:

Again if this documentation seems complex and not understandable exactly where to change you can follow this GitHub commit. Here this is shown the exact changes and processes:

Hope this helps you.

Sharing a blog which explains how to use Third-party bundles when:

  • Hosted in restricted Maven repo
  • Local repo (i.e. when maven repositories cannot be used)
