Subject RE: ApacheDS OSGi configuration
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2009 12:23:00 GMT
Thanks for the suggestions Chris.  I've been watching the discussion of
ApacheDS in an OSGi bundle for a couple of months so I understand that
this is leading edge project.   I'll work through your suggestions and
let you know what I found.  Thanks again - Glenn Everitt

Subject: Re: ApacheDS OSGi configuration

This OSGi bundle module is rather experimental at the moment and
probably depends greatly on the ServiceMix 4 Kernel
<>  and its packages
dependencies.  If the Spring DM extender is finding the
META-INF/spring/server.xml file and trying to start the server, then
there should be some errors or something in the logs.  Embedding in
other OSGi containers is definitely one of the eventual goals, but I
have not tried to use anything other than Felix and ServiceMix Kernel at
this point.  If you want to post any errors or log info that might help,
I would be happy to help you work through it.

	I'm trying to get ApacheDS running under equinox but having some
configuration problems.  (Not sure this should be dev list or user list
so my apologies.)
	I've downloaded and build apacheds\all and apacheds\osgi  and I
think they build correctly 
	all\target contains  apacheds-all-1.5.5-SNAPSHOT.jar    size 8KB
and apacheds-all-1.5.5-SNAPSHOT-app.jar  size 6,938KB
	osgi\target contains apacheds-osgi-1.5.5-SNAPSHOT.jar  size
	I'm trying to configure to run in equinox rather than felix (
long story).  So, I used eclipse to create a project from the jar
apacheds-all-1.5.5-SNAPSHOT.jar   and I did the same for
apacheds-osgi-1.5.5-SNAPSHOT.jar  and then after pulling in a bunch of
apache commons jars into a "library" bundle everything seems to have
resolved.  Next I added to a debug configuration in eclipse I have
equinox starting up and I have the bundles ""
and "" both in Active state. 
	However the "" (osgi bundle) should
be registering services.  I noticed the server.xml in the examples
folder which looks like a spring configuration file and the default
settings seemed reasonable.  So, I added a spring folder in the META-INF
folder and copied the server.xml into it.  I restarted equinox and using
the equinox osgi console "bundle" command I was hoping to see that the
services defined in the servers.xml would have been started.
Unfortunately, they were not started and I found the activator pointing
to org.eclipse.equinox.http.jetty.internal.Activator - it doesn't look
like it does anything to register the services so it must be up to the
spring configuration in servers.xml.  I'm not sure why this isn't
working.  Also, I am not sure what core file is located here generated
by Apache XBean:
	It looks like it binds interceptor names to implementation
classes.  If you have any information about how to configure these
bundles I would appreciate it. 
	Thanks (ApacheDS is great software - I've using it "outside" of
equinox and am impressed with the feature set and stability.)
