Subject [jira] Commented: (ACE-56) Cross IDE debugging solution
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2009 07:36:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACE-56?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12768591#action_12768591
] 

Toni Menzel commented on ACE-56:
--------------------------------

How to use latest patch:
- apply from ace root, you will get a new subproject called devtools
- just src are included
- compile-dependencies: java5, osgi core api
- runtime dependencies: equinox 3.5+ or felix 2.0+

There is a unclear behaviour when using felix, which has to be debugged from a felix point
of view (unrelated to ace). However both should work. I used equinox (for the time being).

> Ace is a complex system where short buid/test cycles are important.
> I have a small "instantlauncher" part that makes it possible to use dev-targets directly
IDE. Because they are standalone Main Class, they can be started right away in any IDE.
> Benefits:
> - short dev cycle because it uses core/conf/<targetname>/ and its configuration
information directly via inspection.
> So, for example a complete dev-server-webui launcher looks like this
> {code}
> public class DevServerWebUI
> {
>     public static void main( String[] args )
>         throws Exception
>     {
>         new DevelopmentLauncher().launch( new AceReactor( new TargetDescriptor()
>         {
>             public String targetName()
>             {
>                 return "dev-server-webui";
>             }
>             public String[] settingsOverwrite()
>             {
>                 return new String[]{
>                     "org.apache.ace.configurator.CONFIG_DIR=core/conf/" + targetName()
>                 };
>             }
>         }
>         )
>         );
>     }
> }
> {code}
> Because it uses bundles from core/deploy/bundles directly, redeploy cycle is minimal.
> Question: Is this of general use in ace or should i keep it for myself.
> The solution builds on top of the FrameworkFactory API from OSGI Core R4.2. So it does
not contain any framework relevant compile references.
