The bnd workspace can use a resolver to calculate the content of the
-runbundles instruction based on a set of initial requirements. The bndtools GUI can manually resolve the initial requirements but through the
-resolve instruction it is possible to calculate the
-runbundles when the file is saved or just before the
-runbundles are used in the launch.
The values are:
manual– It is up to the user to resolve the initial requirements
auto– Whenever the initial requirements are saved, the resolver will be used to set new
beforelaunch– Calculate the
-runbundleson demand. This ignores the value of the
-runbundlesand runs the resolver. The results of the resolver are cached. This cache works by creating a checksum over all the properties of the project.
batch– When running in batch mode, the run bundles will be resolved. In all other modes this will only resolve when the
cache– Will use a cache file in the workspace cache. If that file is stale relative to the workspace or project or it does not exist, then the bnd(run) file will be resolved and the result is stored in the cache file.
