Subject RE: Dynamically deploying interceptors via JMX
Date Mon, 26 Feb 2007 18:18:08 GMT
Hi Dan,
In order to use the ApplicationContextAware mechanism, the object I am instrumenting would
have to created by Spring itself which is not necessarily the case. 
Here is what I would like to do:
1)Expose the Bus as an MBean. In the CXFBusImpl constructor, construct an MBeanWrapper around
the Bus and register it with the InstrumentationManager. This BusMBeanWrapper would have a
addInterceptor(String id) method on it. It would be nice if this wrapper had a handle to the
ApplicationContext which was used to create the Bus. However, since the Bus itself is not
ApplicationContextAware, I am not sure how to do this.
2)Users call addInterceptor(String id) on Bus MBean. This id is used to lookup interceptor
from ApplicationContext so that if this method is called several times, the same interceptor
is always used for the given ID.

For starters, users would have to define any interceptors that they expected to use in the
bean.xml file used to configure the Bus. Later on we could make such that Interceptors beans
could be specified at runtime.

In your JMX component you could implement ApplicationContextAware which will
give you a handle on the ApplicationContext.

What if the interceptor isn't previously defined in an XML file? For
example, lets say I want to add a logging interceptor. I would have to have
it predefined in my beans.xml then, right?
