Goal features:add-features-to-repo

The features:add-features-to-repo goal adds all the required bundles for a given set of features into directory. You can use this goal to create a /system directory for building your own Karaf-based distribution.

By default, the Karaf core features descriptors (standard and enterprise) are automatically included in the descriptors set.

Example

The example below copies the bundles for the spring and war features defined in the Karaf features XML descriptor into the target/features-repo directory.

Parameters

Name Type Description

NB: Karaf core features descriptors (standard and enterprise) are automatically added in this list

karafVersion String Target Karaf version to use to resolve the Karaf core features descriptors (standard and enterprise)
