Subject Re: camel-cxf component & dependencies jars !!
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2009 12:04:10 GMT
Hi Charles and all the Camel users,

More than an answer to Charles, this mail also starts a point on Camel 
integration in OSGi.

I'm actually developping such a thing on a JOnAS 5.1 application server, 
which rely on a Felix OSGi gateway. I'm also using a 1.5.0 version of 
camel, and a 2.1.3 version of CXF (and it's actually a bundle ;)).

I did have some improvement to do on Camel (exposes it as an OSGi 
service using iPOJO, redefines how to lookup converters in packages, and 
some other stuffs, a complete point on this to come ...) I'm providing 
my project some integration tests to validate my work, and then propose 
it to the Camel community.

However, you can browse my sources at this address : 

for your problem, i didn't have any of them, as both camel modules and 
CXF are provided as bundles. The only problem i had is for CXF bundle 
which doesn't import the Jetty classes if you need to expose web 
services from simple POJO, using the front end API of CXF. A way to 
expose your packages you need to be exposed as an OSGi bundle is to 
build your own bundle with those packages embedded and exported. 
Moreover, you have to avoid cycled dependencies.
