Subject [VOTE] - Release Apache CXF DOSGi 2.0.0
Date Wed, 14 Sep 2016 14:16:30 GMT
This is a vote to release Apache CXF DOSGi 2.0.0.

The main change in this version is to split the SOAP support from the 
REST support. So it is now possible to only install SOAP support or only 
REST support. The multi bundle distro still contains both variants but 
the karaf features are now separate.

As a new distro style we now offer a repository pom with the bundle 
dependencies which is suitable to create a bndtools index from it. So it 
is very easy to use CXF-DOSGi in bndtools. There is also such a 
repository pom for the samples that contains everything needed to run 
the samples from bndtools. The first example that uses this is the soap 
example. It contains a soap.bndrun file that can be directly started and 
debugged from eclipse. This pom based repo might be a replacement for 
the current multi bundle distro as it is much smaller and more flexible.

The bndtools based assembly uses the resolver to create a minimal set of 
bundles for the sample. For SOAP and REST together I was able to make 
this as small as 9 MB. For pure SOAP it is just 7.7 MB.

Another big change is that the examples are now based on a slightly 
changed TaskList service which is easier to understand that the previous 
Greeter example. The examples now have karaf features to make it easy to 
test them in karaf.

Apart from these major changes I looked through the open issues and 
marked a lot of them as fixed as they should be solved in the new code. 
Please give feedback if anything is not yet solved.

I have not yet changed the wiki documentation to reflect the new code. 
As it would be difficult to have the old and new documentation side by 
side in the wiki I did most of the documentation in the code using 
github markdown syntax. This allows to have the documentation closer to 
the code and also will allow to look into the documentation of previous 
I plan to point to the gihub docs from the wiki and keep the old wiki 
contents as documentation of the 1.x releases.

You can find the new documentation here:

If you want to try the new code I recommend to follow the installation 
instructions of the examples:

Btw. as usual .. until the release is pushed to maven central you will 
have to add the maven repo listed below to your karaf instance.
