ASTRA released under GPLv3

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

ASTRA, the project I have been working on for the last year and a half, has finally been published under GPLv3 license on sourceforge.
A wiki is also availabe to get technical information about the code.
Now our effort will be focused in creating a community out of it, as wide as possible.
We hope that the project will be useful to other members of the free software community.
Any feedback we get for the project is more than welcome. I enquire some of the people that might now me to have a look at it and tell me what do they think about it.

Error: [javac] package org.osgi.framework does not exist [javac] import org.osgi.framework.BundleActivator;

Friday, June 20th, 2008

I have been fighting OSGi for a while by following a tutorial from Sven Haiges (Vodafone). The question is that I got an error with the following message when I tryied to run build.xml:
[javac] …\ package org.osgi.framework does not exist
[javac] import org.osgi.framework.BundleActivator;
…….  (muchos más)

I had already added the classpath in eclipse so I didn’t know why it was failing. It seems that ant is not using the classpath from eclipse so I solved the problem modifying the build.xml propposed in the tutorial in this way.

<javac destdir = “./classes”
debug = “on”
srcdir = “./src”
classpath = “C:\knopflerfish_osgi_2.1.0\\osgi\framework.jar”

I added the value for the classpath (supposing that this is the instalation directory for knopflerfish) to the javac tag.

By doing this the compilation will work fine.
