Subject Improvements to Axis2 Faulty Services Handling
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2009 03:29:01 GMT
Hi devs,

Current behavior of Axis2 does not allows a faulty service to become a
"normal" service. If a service becomes faulty, it remains there forever.
There is no way for a faulty service become a "normal" service, even after
its dependencies are available.

Axis2 service becomes faulty if,

the referenced Axis2 module is not available,
the referenced transport is not available,
there are classloading issues,
the services descriptor file has errors in it, etc..

For an example, Service X is added as a faulty service because the
referenced module M has not been deployed at that time. But after the module
M is deployed, service X cannot be considered as faulty anymore. Hence the
service X should be deployed as a "normal" service. This kind of scenarios
can occur when we run Axis2 in an OSGi environment. Services and modules can
come as an OSGi bundles and one can't really predict the order of these

I would like to improve the faulty services handling aspect in Axis2 to cope
with these situations.
