java.io.IOException: Bundle-SymbolicName header missing, cannot install bundle - while installing bundle in server

Avatar

Level 3

Hi all,

We have to install and start bundles and packages using shell script.

cURL  script used for installing Packages :

   curl -u admin:${ADMIN_PASSWORD} -F file=@"${AEM_DEPLOY_DIR}/${PACKAGE_ZIP}.zip" -F name="${AEM_DEPLOY_DIR}/${PACKAGE_ZIP}" -F force=true -F install=true http://${SERVER_NAME}:${SERVER_PORT}/crx/packmgr/service.jsp

cURL  script used for installing and starting Bundles:

curl -u admin:${ADMIN_PASSWORD} -F action=install -F bundlestartlevel=20 -F bundlefile=@"${AEM_DEPLOY_DIR}/${BUNDLE_JAR}.jar"  http://${SERVER_NAME}:${SERVER_PORT}/system/console/bundles
curl -u admin:${ADMIN_PASSWORD} http://${SERVER_NAME}:${SERVER_PORT}/system/console/bundles/org.apache.sling.scripting.jsp -F action=start

While running the wrapper script, we are able to install the packages successfully but not the bundle. Please find below error from log file :

2015-12-23_01-32-30 [Info]: Starting bundle install...

Please let me know how to install the bundle.

Regards,

Swathi.

Hi,

are you sure, that your bundle has been built correctly? Especially you should check, that the MANIFEST.MF file contains a proper SymbolicName header.

Is your OSGi bundle located in the package under /install ? 

Anyhow - I am not a fan of using Curl - seen weird issues like this.

 

In my view - using Maven is the best way to build bundles and manage them

You can  use the Content Package Maven Plugin to manage packages:

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/core/how_to/how_to_use_the_vlttool/vlt-mavenplugin.html

We have many community articles that show how to use Maven to build OSGi bundles.

Please refer to the AEM Community page for a listing of many other resources that describe how to build bundles for many different use cases:
