Osmorc: OSGI support for IDEA

| Tags: , ,

I have published the first release of my third IDEA plugin called Osmorc. Osmorc is a plugin that enables development of OSGI based appllications in IDEA.

Currently only some basic elements like Export-Package, Import-Package and Require-Bundle are supported, but those are the necessary building blocks for OSGI applications. Making those concepts work with IDEA’s module system, which doesn’t allow exporting and importing of specific packages, was a prerequisite for any further development of this plugin. I think I found a pragmatic way of doing it that should work in most cases.

On the home page of the plugin I’ll post more information about the plugin and how it works during the next days.
