Hi Joszef,

I think your email to might be stuck in a
moderation queue somewhere.

The OSGi Http Service is often just a facade over an existing web container.
On this page it says:
  "HTTP ServletBridge (org.eclipse.equinox.http.servletbridge)
    A thin layer that exposes an underlying application server (e.g.,
Tomcat or Jetty) as an OSGi HTTP service."

So by using the OSGi Http Service you are really using the underlying
Tomcat. It's just a standard interface over it...

Isn't that what you'd like to do?

Best regards,

Hi David,

I don't see my mail in the cxf-users archive, so I send to you
directly. When does the nabble render the incoming mails to the nabble
cxf archive site? Do I send attachment to the cxf-users mailing list?

Best regards,

Hi all,

David, you misunderstood me. Our problem is the running http service
inside the OSGi container. We want to utilize the tomcat webcontainer
to serviceing HTTP requests (including SOAP), and forward them to the
right bundle inside the OSGi container like the functionality of the
bridgeservlet in the equinox's servletbridge.

For a better understanding I attached an architecture sketch.

Best regards,

Hi Jozsef,

I'm copying as that's a good place to discuss
these questions.

What you're asking should be possible as long as the container that
you're running in registers the OSGi HTTP Service. As you're already
in Equinox I suspect that this is happening already (you can easily
find this out by checking that a service is registered under the
org.osgi.service.http.HttpService interface).

You can configure CXF-DOSGi to use the OSGi HTTP Service instead of
the embedded Jetty server. Doing this should not start Jetty and you
should be using the one provided by your platform. You do this by
setting the property on your
to-be-exported service. See the reference page: or this blog
for more info.

When doing this you should probably use the multi-bundle distribution.
The CXF-DOSGi binary distros come with their own OSGi HTTP Service
(provided through pax-web). You probably want to remove that bundle
from your installation as otherwise you'd end up with two HTTP
Services in your container.

Hope this helps,
