Subject Moving spring-dm out of camel-spring
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:09:39 GMT

I took a stab at ticket

This is only relevant for OSGi users on Karaf / ServiceMix

This moves the old spring-dm pieces out of camel-spring into a new
camel-spring-dm module.

This allows users who are using Camel and install the camel-spring
component to not use spring 3.x JARs anymore.

So if you have some Camel apps that uses Spring XML on Karaf/SMX then
you need to install camel-spring-dm feature first as it has the
spring-dm pieces (namespace parser extension).

I pushed this into a new branch 9521 which you can see at

The missing pieces is to migrate the osgi related tests in the
tests/camel-itest-osgi to install camel-spring-dm as well. But this
test module is currently not migrated from karaf 2.x to 4.x yet so it
has its own problems.

To make the maintenance of camel-spring-dm as painless, I moved the
osgi code from camel-spring into this module, and then inlined the
camel-spring into this module,. This was also how it worked before. If
you dont do that you are in for a hell of OSGi classloading hell.

With the spring-dm out of camel-spring we can also start to make it
deprecated so eventually we can drop it all together.

The Karaf team is working on a spring xml -> blueprint adapter so you
can write spring xml but it runs as blueprint instead.
