I have an aQute annotated class:

class TheComponent implements Foo {

but OSGi plugin does not create the OSGI-INF/component.xml file if someone is using:

jar {

{ instruction 'Service-Component', '*' }


The MANIFEST.MF contains:

Service-Component: OSGI-INF/com.example.TheComponent.xml

but neither the directory OSGI-INF not the XML file is part of the resulting jar.

Using a non-annotated class together with

instruction 'Service-Component', 'aQute.tutorial.component.World;log=org.osgi.service.log.LogService'

does not help either. The result is the same.

The osgi plugin does not address your use case currently. It does only generate the manifest. We will address this issue for 1.0. The workaround you have at the moment is to use the bnd ant task and then to merge the generated manifest and other files into the jar task.
