Amdatu projects have been updated and new releases are published to a S3 bucket. This repo won't be updated anymore and is marked read only!


This project is the master for the Amdatu release repository. Its contents is mirrored at

Release HOWTO

In order to create releases for Amdatu, you need the following prerequisites:

  1. A valid account and sufficient rights on the "Amdatu-repository" repository on BitBucket;
  2. A local copy of the "Amdatu-repository" repository on your machine.

In addition, you need to make sure your Bndtools-based workspace is configured correctly. In the cnf/ext/repositories.xml make sure you've defined the following repositories (be sure to use line continuations!):

aQute.bnd.deployer.repository.LocalIndexedRepo;name='Amdatu releases (local)';local=${workspace}/../amdatu-repository/release
aQute.bnd.deployer.repository.LocalIndexedRepo;name='Amdatu snapshots (local)';local=${workspace}/../amdatu-repository/snapshot

As you can see, this assumes that, next to your project, you've checked out a copy of the 'amdatu-repository' project in a folder next to your project.

To make a release, the following steps should be taken:

  1. Release the relevant bundles from Eclipse using Bndtools directly into the snapshot repository of Amdatu. This will "stage" your bundles to be tested before a final release will take place;
  2. Generate an index for the snapshot repository (see "Generating an index");
  3. Commit the changes to the repository, the changes will be automatically synchronized to;
  4. Verify whether your staged snapshot bundles work as expected by using them from the remote repository (see "Using Amdatu repository");
  5. When verified correctly, move the bundle from the snapshot repository to the release repository of Amdatu. No new build of the bundle is needed;
  6. Regenerate the indexes for both the snapshot repository as well as the release repository (see "Generating an index");
  7. Commit the changes. After a short while, the released bundle(s) are available from

Generating an index

To generate an index, you need to run the script found in the util directory. It accepts one parameter: -a will generate the indexes for both the release as well as the snapshot directory. Alternatively, you can supply either snapshot or release to specifically generate an index for that directory only.

For example, to generate an index for the snapshot directory, you run it as follows:

[localhost:~/]$ ./util/ snapshot

After the index is generated, you can commit and push the new index to the main repository on BitBucket.

Using the Amdatu repository

To use the remote release and snapshot repositories of Amdatu in Bnd(tools), you need to add the following repositories to your cnf/ext/repositories.xml file (be sure to use line continuations!):

aQute.bnd.deployer.repository.LocalIndexedRepo;name='Amdatu Release Repository';locations=''
aQute.bnd.deployer.repository.LocalIndexedRepo;name='Amdatu Snapshot Repository';locations=''

After the workspace is refreshed, the "Repositories" view should now list two new repositories: "Amdatu Snapshot Repository" and "Amdatu Release Repository".
