As you've been working through the OSG i examples in this topic, we've cheerfully
assumed that you didn't need much help building your example bundles. After all,
an OSG i bundle is a JAR with some extra metadata, and even an enterprise OSG i
bundle is only an OSG i bundle with even more extra metadata. But just because you
can build OSG i bundles the same way that you build ordinary JAR s doesn't mean
you should . A lot of specialist tools are out there that can make the process of build-
ing your OSG i application easier and more robust.
