Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6347) CXF bundle activators not called in Eclipse/Equinox
Date Thu, 14 May 2015 04:03:59 GMT


Freeman Fang commented on CXF-6347:

I'd say bundle activator get invoked when start the bundle is per the OSGi spec, so IMO CXF
bundles are good here.

Btw, I suggest you use Apache Karaf feature way to use CXF bundles so that when you install
the CXF feature the related CXF bundles get started OOTB. You can choose the underlying OSGi
framework implementations used in Karaf, both Equinox and Felix work.

> The CXF bundles have OSGi activators that perform initialization stuff such as looking
for CXF services in other bundles. However, in Equinox the bundle activators are not called
unless one explicitly starts the bundles. The default strategy in Equinox is not to start
bundles, unless the "Bundle-ActivationPolicy" is set to "lazy". Therefore this header should
be added to all bundles so that CXF (esp. the client) is also usable inside an Eclipse application.
