Subject [jira] Commented: (ACE-46) Support Nexus OBR repositories direcly
Date Wed, 07 Oct 2009 09:30:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACE-46?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12762962#action_12762962

Marcel Offermans commented on ACE-46:
-------------------------------------

About 1,2,3: 

What we currently need is basically just a thin API on top of some repository like OBR, so
I agree it probably would not be too hard to make Nexus support that, especially if Nexus
can support non-jar artifacts and can upload them. 

I agree with Angelo that we need a way to use or import from multiple sources. 

So in the end, supporting options 1, 2 and 3 would be nice. 

About a,b: 

Referencing the mail on Installable Units in Ace on the mailing list, having a resolver to
help you would be nice, but I don't think it's smart to *rely* on it to only produce valid
sets of bundles. If you need that, a bit more thought and design needs to go into it, and
I have not seen systems that can reliably do that based on meta-data only. 

We don't currently use and information related to requirements and capabilities to do resolving,
but we could definitely look into using existing resolvers. I have not looked at Sigil extensively
enough, but if it has an external resolver then we could investigate if we can use it in our
import/add component dialog.

> At http://osgi.sonatype.org are many (virtual) obr repositories.
> Would be good to support them directly in the server-obr setups and makes this whole
story much more appealing (thousands, millions of bundles) when opening the "choose your bundle"
dialog in webui (for example).
