BND(1) BND for Debian GNU/Linux BND(1)


bnd - Create and diagnose OSGi bundles.


bnd [general-options] [cmd] [cmd-options]

bnd [general-options] <file>.jar

bnd [general-options] <file>.bnd


The bnd tool helps you create and diagnose OSGi bundles. The key functions are:

 * Show the manifest and JAR contents of a bundle
 * Wrap a JAR so that it becomes a bundle
 * Create a Bundle from a specification and a class path
 * Verify the validity of the manifest entries


Same as the property --failok. The current run will create a JAR file even if there were errors.
Will print the exception when the software has ran into a bad exception and bails out. Normally only a message is printed. For debugging or diagnostic reasons, the exception stack trace can be very helpful.
-f, --full
Do full
-p, --project <string>
Identify another project
-t, --test
Build for test
-o, --output <string>
Specify the output file path. The default is output.jar in the current directory


Available commands: action - Execute an action on a repo, or if no name is give, list the actions add - Add a workspace, or a project or a plugin to the workspace baseline - Compare a newer bundle to a baselined bundle and provide versioning advice bash - Generate autocompletion file for bash bnd - The swiss army tool for OSGi bootstrap - Interactive gogo shell bsn2url - From a set of bsns, create a list of urls if found in the repo build - Build a project. This will create the jars defined in the bnd.bnd and sub-builders. buildx - Build project, is deprecated but here for backward compatibility bump - Bumps the version of a project changes - Show the changes in this release of bnd clean - Clean a project compile - Compile a project or the workspace convert - Converter to different formats copy - create - Create jar, used to support backward compatible java jar commands debug - Show a lot of info about the project you're in defaults - deliverables - Show all deliverables from this workspace. with their current version and path. diff - Diff jars digest - Digests a number of files do - Execute a file based on its extension. Supported extensions are: bnd (build), bndrun (run), and jar (print) eclipse - Show info about the current directory's eclipse project ees - Show the Execution Environments of a JAR enroute - OSGi enRoute commands to maintain bnd workspaces (create workspace, add project, etc) export - extract - Extract files from a JAR file, equivalent jar command x[vf] (syntax supported) find - Go through the exports and/or imports and match the given exports/imports globs. If they match, print the file, package and version. flatten - Flatten a bundle by expanding all entries on the Bundle-ClassPath grep - Grep the manifest of bundles/jar files. info - Show key project variables junit - Test a project with plain JUnit macro - Show macro value maven - Maven bundle command nexus - package - Package a bnd or bndrun file into a single jar that executes with java -jar <>.jar plugins - print - Printout the JAR profile - Profile management.
