Bug#643980: ITP: felix-osgi-foundation -- Java OSGi interfaces - Foundation Execution
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Damien Raude-Morvan" <>

* Package name : felix-osgi-foundation
Version : 1.2.0
Upstream Author : Apache Software Foundation / OSGi Alliance
* URL :
* License : Apache-2.0
Programming Lang: Java
Description : Java OSGi interfaces - Foundation Execution Environment

OSGi, for Open Services Gateway initiative framework, is a module system and
service platform for the Java programming language.
This package contains OSGi Foundation Execution Environment
for Release 4 Version 4.2.
This provide Java interfaces for javax.microedition package (J2ME) and packages (J2SE).
The Apache Felix OSGi Foundation EE sub-project simply repackages the
standard OSGi Foundation EE API packages provided by the OSGi Alliance
into a Maven module. There is no runtime dependencies between this package
and Felix Framework itself, so that this library can be used without Felix.

Right now, Felix Framework packages in Debian depends on libequinox-osgi-java
(Eclipse Equinox OSGi framework) in order to just have OSGi simple interfaces.
Since we have netbeans depending on felix-framework, then Netbeans source
package actually depends on Eclipse... [1]

By providing those felix-osgi-* packages, my goal is to have a separate,
simplier, dependency chains for Netbeans.
