To install features using mvn handler:
feature:repo-add mvn:org.apache.servicemix.nmr/apache-servicemix-nmr/1.0.0-m2/xml/features feature:install nmr
To use a file handler to deploy a features file (note the path is relative to the Apache Karaf installation directory):
To deploy bundles from file system without using Maven: As we can use file:// as protocol handler to deploy bundles, you can use the following syntax to deploy bundles when they are located in a directory which is not available using Maven:
<features xmlns="http://karaf.apache.org/xmlns/features/v1.0.0"> <feature name="spring-web" version="2.5.6.SEC01"> <bundle>file:base/bundles/spring-web-2.5.6.SEC01.jar</bundle> </feature> </features>
Note the path again is relative to Apache Karaf installation directory.
