Subject [jira] [Updated] (ARIES-938) Proposal: SPI Catch (plug-in discovery for both plain Java >=5 and OSGi)
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 14:45:02 GMT


Jeremias Maerki updated ARIES-938:


The attached is the initial proposal. It has a README.txt with some documentation.
There is one issue that I haven't been able to fix, yet: The integration tests run from within
Eclipse, but there is an exception running it from the Maven build. If anyone has an idea,
this would be most welcome. I'm not so familiar with Maven.

> As discussed in I propose a new component
for Apache Aries, code-named "SPI Catch", as a complement to SPI Fly.
> SPI Catch provides an abstraction to plug-in discovery that for libraries that make use
of the JAR service provider mechanism (through META-INF/services) to discover plug-ins. It
shields the client from OSGi specifics but all the same offering the dynamics provided through
the OSGi service registry. It is an deal counter-part to Apache Aries SPI Fly which is used
to publish SPI providers as OSGi services. And finally, another focus is on preserving the
runnability totally outside of OSGi.
