Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1332) Create apacheds-all OSGi bundle
Date Thu, 19 Mar 2009 08:45:50 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSERVER-1332:

# The only thing that I have done that may cause problems is that i have generated a modified
schema for validating the server.xml file as opposed to the xbean generation during the build.
I did this to get around some issues I was having but I think I can make it work better with
a few more hours of work. As far as the packaging (bundle vs jar), a bundle is just a jar
with extra manifest info so everything will continue to work the same if you are just using
it as a jar. I will work more on the schema tomorrow because I am sure that will not work
with existing server.xml files. 

I don't think the files under src/main/resources will bother us when using the jar as a simple

BTW, I don't see any BundleActivator class. Which class is responsible of the life cycle of
the bundle?

# I checked back in December about current usage of apacheds-all and I didn't recall any official
uses so I thought we established that it was OK to work on it here in trunk. If this is going
to cause some worries I am happy to move it to sandbox if necessary.

Yeah, we don't make use of this jar inside the project. It is more directed to our users who
want a single library containing all the dependencies.
Here's initial JIRA about the apacheds-all project:
The apacheds-all project is also used in the documentation at

I don't think working in a sandbox is required, but if the modifications to make the jar become
an OSGI bundle forbids us to use the jar in its initial purpose, I think a new specific apacheds-osgi
project in trunk would make more sense.

My 2 cents.
