After bnd has build a project it creates 0 or more JARs. If the
-buildrepo is set, the JARs are
put into the given repositories. The syntax is as follows:
-buildrepo ::= repo ( ',' repo )* repo ::= NAME ( ';' NAME ('=' VALUE)? )*
The instruction provides a name of a repository, the repository must exist in the workspace. Any properties added to the name are provided as properties in the release context and thus given to the repository.
This feature was inspired by the Maven Bnd Repository. In the Maven development process, projects are installed in the local repository (usually
~/.m2/repository) so they can be shared with other Maven projects. Setting the
-buildrepo to a Maven repository will allow a bnd workspace to participate in this process on equal footing. Every time the project is build, all its JARs are installed in the associated Maven repository.
-plugin.maven \ aQute.bnd.repository.maven.provider.MavenBndRepository; \ name=Local -buildrepo: Local
The install process is taking place in-line with the build process. It is therefore recommended to only use this for local (i.e. file system based) installs.
