Bnd/Bndtools. Tooling to build OSGi bundles including Eclipse, Maven, and Gradle plugins.
Bnd/Bndtools is a swiss army knife for OSGi. It creates manifest headers for you based on analyzing the class code, it verifies your settings, it manages project dependencies, diffs jars, and much more.
The git repository contains all the code.

Though we am usually pretty good at backward compatibility, there is no guarantee. This is an unpaid project. Bnd properties will be backward compatible if there is any possibility.
