Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACE-365) OBR non-bundle metadata has no symbolicname/version metadata
Date Tue, 25 Jun 2013 13:10:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACE-365?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13693004#comment-13693004

Marcel Offermans commented on ACE-365:
--------------------------------------

As a heuristic, I can live with that. However, I don't agree that in general every type of
artifact has a version. For bundles, this is clear: their metadata contains both a BSN and
version. For other artifacts, it is not so clear (for example, a JPEG file). So I agree we
can give them an identity, we can even give them a version (if we like) but we should not
rely on everything in the world to be versioned (semantically). I believe that should be a
separate discussion though, so +1 on this issue.

> Although the ACE OBR support uploading non-bundle resources based on the filename :=
<bsn>-<version>.<ext>  heuristic, this metadata is not reflected in the
respository.xml index. Infact it only species the resource.uri.
> As a result it is impossible to find these resources by querying the repository in a
sensible way, such as using a requirement with an osgi.identity=<bsn> filter directive.
> Therefore, I suggest to at least add the resource.symbolicname and resource.version to
the current implementation. This is in line with R5 where every resource will have an osgi.identity
and osgi.content namespace capability.
