Auto-Provisioning OSGi Features: Automatic Versioning
The final post in a 3-part walkthrough for automatically versioning and provisioning features for OSGi deployments. This post discusses how the features.xml file produced by the previous 2 posts can be told to automatically manage version numbers.
The post begins with an explanation of our motivation, discusses a forked modification to an existing Maven plugin which will provide the functionality we require, and finally move into the use of the plugin in the pom.xml.
This post, like the previous posts, is code-heavy with bare descriptions. Questions are very welcome.
