Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARIES-938) Proposal: SPI Catch (plug-in discovery for both plain Java >=5 and OSGi)
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 09:21:58 GMT


Jeremias Maerki commented on ARIES-938:

I hereby have to retract the proposal code due to a serious problem with respect to garbage
collection which causes services not to be detected in a JVM with aggressive GC options. I
will post an updated proposal as soon as I've solved this.

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.
