Subject Re: Migrating CXF-DOSGi to be complaint with the new OSGi Remote Service Admin spec
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 11:15:06 GMT
Marc has submitted the first patch to bug 2427.
I'll be applying the patch shortly.

As this is work in progress, here's a summary of a few things that
aren't finished yet:
Remote Service Admin & Topology Manager   (former DSW):
- Support of the HTTP service is not working at the moment as the
complete configuration type handler is deactivated
- Only the Pojo configuration type handler is supported at the moment
the others will follow soon
- The service decorator is disabled at the moment
- Configuration of the Remote Service Admin and the Topology Manager
via the Configuration Admin is not possible
- Most of the test cases from the former DSW are deactivated as they
need to be adapted to the Remote Service Admin and the Topology

- Local Discovery is missing
- The Systests are deactivated as they are not yet adapted to the new

Marc and I will be working on resolving these issues.

Best regards,
