[Eclipse] org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Could not find bundle: org.eclipse.equinox.console

With Eclipse Kepler 4.3.1 SR1, you must switch to Apache Felix Gogo.

With latest Eclipse Kepler 4.3.1 SR1, I tried to run one of my older OSGi projects. Earlier this project was running smoothly with Eclipse Indigo (3.7.1).

However, when I tried to execute it via Eclipse Kepler version as a "OSGI Framework" configuration; I was surprised since it showed an exception as org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Could not find bundle: org.eclipse.equinox.console .

Below is the complete stack-trace.

!SESSION date time -----------------------------------------------

Solution

A quick look into the details revealed that the default shell of Eclipse has been moved to "Apache Felix Gogo"; so the necessary bundles must be added to the "Run Configuration" before running. Followings are the four bundled that you need to select from the list.

org.apache.felix.gogo.command_0.10.0v<version>.jar
org.apache.felix.gogo.runtime_0.10.0v<version>.jar
org.apache.felix.gogo.shell_0.10.0v<version>.jar
org.eclipse.equinox.console_1.0.100<version>.jar

After adding these as shown in the above diagram, the program runs smoothly.
