bnd - Create and diagnose OSGi bundles.


bnd [general-options] [cmd] [cmd-options]

bnd [general-options] <file>.jar

bnd [general-options] <file>.bnd


The bnd tool helps you create and diagnose OSGi bundles. The key functions are:

* Show the manifest and JAR contents of a bundle
* Wrap a JAR so that it becomes a bundle
* Create a Bundle from a specification and a class path
* Verify the validity of the manifest entries


Same as the property --failok. The current run will create a JAR file even if there
were errors.

Will print the exception when the software has ran into a bad exception and bails out.
Normally only a message is printed. For debugging or diagnostic reasons, the exception
stack trace can be very helpful.
