Subject Re: [avalon-jetty] Status update
Date Tue, 11 Nov 2003 00:22:19 GMT
I've just comitted this in the merlin repo under merlin/web/http and 
have the demo up and running:


What can I say - this is *really* nice!
Well done.

I've updated the dependencies so that everything will build and deploy 
off the repository.  I also added a standalone deployment descriptor 
that you can run directly from merlin:

  $ merlin http://dpml.net/avalon-http/blocks/avalon-http-1.3.block

then check results my pointing your browser to:


I did had a problem concerning the SessionManager that may have crept in 
as a result of the spi/impl separation.  The value passed to the web-app 
is a jetty SessionManager but the value acquired from the service 
manager is a http.SessionManager (resulting in a class cast exception).  
I've changed the http.SessionManager to extend jetty.SessionManager in 
the SPI package as a temporary solution to get things going. 

However - we will need to sort this out in order for the SPI to be 
independent of the jetty implementation (which I think we can do by 
building a session instance dynamically based on meta-info pulled in 
from the servlet class) and maybe through this we can eliminate the need 
for servlet specific session classes which would bring things down to 
just the servlet class and @avalon tags. 

Thanks again for getting this in place!

Cheers, Steve.
