How can we load a 3rd party library that is not an OSGi? bundle.
You can use sling bootdelegation in sling.properties.
- Add the jar to the shared classpath of your application server, for example crx-quickstart/server/lib/container under CQSE.
- Add sling.system.packages.simple or sling.system.packages.class. property to load the 3rd party packages. This will add 3rd party packages to the export list of the system bundle.
Add the com.some.package package to the org.osgi.framework.system.packages property:
sling.system.packages.simple = com.some.package
Checks whether the com.some.other.Main class is known. If so, the com.some.other package is added to the org.osgi.framework.system.packages property.
sling.system.packages.class.com.some.other.Main = com.some.other
Please refer to Sling documentation for more information.
