Assistance getting started with bundlor
I am starting a new project and i am trying to use Bundlor for creating my OSGi bundles. After looking at the greenpages example, it appears that the hand-edited MANIFEST.MF contains all the information and the transform goal is being used. I was wondering what Bundlor is providing except for validating the MANIFEST.MF entries match your codebase.
For someone starting a new project with bundlor and not converting existing jars, what is the best approach for using it? Should we use it?
Also, I was wondering if the intention for bundlor is that it can generate a mostly functional MANIFEST based on my dependencies instead of me having to define them all with me juts defining the module specific properties like private/exported packages.
