Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6347) CXF bundle activators not called in Eclipse/Equinox
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2015 15:47:05 GMT


Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-6347:

Ok, if 'Bundle-ActivationPolicy: lazy' is not set, what does it mean to Equinox ? Do not call
activators at all ? I'm def not an OSGI expert but it appears to be nether standard not correct...
And this is why I also asked, what if we do set this headers and then Karaf will start honouring
it and not calling CXF activators when CXF bundles are loaded - while we do want them be called
when they are loaded

> 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.
