Subject [jira] [Updated] (AVRO-987) Make Avro OSGi ready
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2012 01:52:39 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-987?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Ioannis Canellos updated AVRO-987:
----------------------------------

    Attachment: AVRO-987-patch.txt

I am attaching a patch which adds the following:

i) Uses maven-bundle-plugin in order to generate proper MANIFEST.MF for OSGi deployment.
ii) Added a utility class ClassLoadingUtils which provides methods for loading classes that
will use Class.forName but will fallback to the Thread context Classloader, if Class.forName
fails.
iii) Replaced all calls to Class.forName with class to the ClassLoadingUtils.

The patch has been test on Apache Karaf using a simple IPC sample.

> It would be really nice to be able to use Avro inside OSGi. To achieve this two things
are required:
> i) Provide proper MANIFEST.MF.
> ii) Deal with potential class loading issues. Avro uses Class.forName a lot and that
is not very OSGi friendly.
