Subject [DISCUSS] OSGi support for Artemis
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2015 14:21:38 GMT
I was looking at supporting OSGi deployment for Artemis.

The first big problem I hit is the existence of split packages.  Split
packages are java packages shared across multiple jars (which become
bundles in OSGi).
Examples of those are org.apache.activemq.artemis.uri (shared between
artemis-jms-client and artemis-core-client) or
org.apache.activemq.artemis.api.config (shared between artemis-core-client
and artemis-commons).
The reason they are problematic is that in OSGi, each bundle has its own
class loader, importing classes from other packages based on packages.  The
same package can not be imported from 2 different bundles.

So the question is: would it be possible to get rid of those split packages
? It can be done either by moving the classes from a jar to another one,
keeping the same package name, or by renaming one of the split package so
that there's no duplicate package names across jars.

Thoughts ?
