 <p><em>Distributed Service defines how to deal with remote services in OSGi. This page describes the CXF Distributed OSGi with iPOJO demo.This demo uses iPOJO to create a remote OSGi service from an iPOJO component. The consumer side also uses iPOJO to create a component that consumes the remote OSGi service. By using iPOJO, you don't need to write code to interact with the OSGi Service Registry at all. That's all handled through injection, which hugely simplifies the code. Moreover thanks to iPOJO's advanced features such as property propagation, the service is exported without any impact on its implementation.</em></p>
-<p>In this demo, you will show how to use iPOJO:
-<em> to expose a service 
-</em> to propagate properties to make the service remotely accessible
-* to use a "remote" service</p>

 <p>This demo can be used with any DOSGi distribution, in this document the single-bundle distribution (1.1) is used with iPOJO 1.6.0 and Felix (2.0.5)</p>

+<h2 id="getting-ipojo-annotations">Getting iPOJO Annotations:</h2>
+<p>iPOJO Annotations are defines inside the org.apache.felix.ipojo.annotations project. You can download the Jar file of this project from the <a href="/documentation/subprojects/apache-felix-ipojo/download.html">download</a> page. Sources are available on the [Felix trunk|http://felix.apache.org/site/sourcecode.html].
+Once added to your class path / build path / dependencies, you can use the annotations as normal annotations. These annotations are automatically processed by the iPOJO manipulator.</p>
+<h3 id="in-eclipse">In Eclipse</h3>
+<p>Add the org.apache.felix.ipojo.annotations jar file in your build path. Do not forget to use a Java compiler accepting annotations (1.5 or higher).</p>
+<h3 id="in-maven">In Maven</h3>
+<p>Add the following dependency:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="nt">&lt;dependency&gt;</span>
+      <span class="nt">&lt;groupId&gt;</span>org.apache.felix<span class="nt">&lt;/groupId&gt;</span>
+      <span class="nt">&lt;artifactId&gt;</span>org.apache.felix.ipojo.annotations<span class="nt">&lt;/artifactId&gt;</span>
+      <span class="nt">&lt;version&gt;</span>1.8.0<span class="nt">&lt;/version&gt;</span>
+<span class="nt">&lt;/dependency&gt;</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>Moreover, you need to set that the source code and the target code are Java 1.5 code. To achieve this, just add the following plugin in your plugins section:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="nt">&lt;plugin&gt;</span>
+  <span class="nt">&lt;groupId&gt;</span>org.apache.maven.plugins<span class="nt">&lt;/groupId&gt;</span>
+    <span class="nt">&lt;artifactId&gt;</span>maven-compiler-plugin<span class="nt">&lt;/artifactId&gt;</span>
+    <span class="nt">&lt;configuration&gt;</span>
+      <span class="nt">&lt;source&gt;</span>1.5<span class="nt">&lt;/source&gt;</span>
+      <span class="nt">&lt;target&gt;</span>1.5<span class="nt">&lt;/target&gt;</span>
+    <span class="nt">&lt;/configuration&gt;</span>
+<span class="nt">&lt;/plugin&gt;</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<h3 id="in-ant">In Ant</h3>
+<p>Just add the org.apache.felix.ipojo.annotations jar file  in your class path.</p>
+<h2 id="an-example-of-usage">An example of usage</h2>
+<p>To illustrate annotations usage, let taking the tutorial example. In this tutorial, there are two components:
+<em> The first one provides the hello service
+</em> The second one uses the provided hello service
+You can download the archive containing the examples and a preconfigured version of Felix <a href="http://people.apache.org/~clement/ipojo/tutorials/annotations/annotation-tutorial.zip">here</a>.</p>
+<h3 id="hello-service-provider">Hello Service Provider</h3>
+<p>The provider uses two annotations. The "component" annotation is mandatory and defines that the class defines a component type. Then the "provides" annotation just declare that the defined component type provides a service.</p>

+
+<h3 id="hello-service-consumer">Hello Service Consumer</h3>
+<p>The Hello Service Consumer use more annotations. First it used the component annotation. To defines its "immediate" behavior, it add the 'immediate' attribute.
+Then, it uses the requires annotation to define a service dependency. Finally, it uses the validate and invalidate annotations to define lifecycle callbacks.</p>

+<h3 id="exposing-instances-as-a-jmx-mbean-external-handler">Exposing instances as a JMX MBean (external handler)</h3>
+<p>The JMX Handler allows exposing an instance as a JMX MBean. To configure the JMX handler directly from your code, three annotations are provided. They are in the <code>org.apache.felix.ipojo.handlers.jmx</code> package</p>
+<p>The <code>@org.apache.felix.ipojo.handlers.jmx.Config</code> (<code>@Config</code> if the package it correctly imported) annotation is a type annotation (so placed on the <code>class</code> element. This annotation indicates that the instance will be exposed as an MBean. This annotation supports:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>usesMOSGi: set to <code>true</code> to use MOSGi. Otherwise, the MBean will be exposed in the MBean Platform Server (default: <code>false</code>).</li>
+<li>objectname: set the MBean objectname. The objectname must follow JMX specification. (default: <code>package-name:factory-name:instance-name</code>)</li>
+<li>domain: set the MBean domain. (default: <code>package-name</code>)</li>
+<li>name: set the MBean name. (default: <code>instance-name</code>).</li>
+</ul>
+<p>The <code>@org.apache.felix.ipojo.handlers.jmx.Property</code> (<code>@Property</code>) annotation is a field annotation indicating that the field is exposed in the MBean. The supported attributes are:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>name: set the property name</li>
+<li>rights: set the access permission. Possible values are <code>r</code> (read only) and <code>w</code> (read and write). By default, properties are in read-only mode.</li>
+<li>notification: enables notification on this property. By default notifications are disabled.</li>
+</ul>
+<p>The <code>@org.apache.felix.ipojo.handlers.jmx.Method</code> (<code>@Method</code>) annotation is a method annotation indicating that the method is exposed in the MBean. Only one attribute can be customized:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>description: set the method description.</li>
+</ul>
+<h2 id="advanced-topics-and-faq">Advanced topics and FAQ</h2>
+<h3 id="metadata-file-and-annotation-merge">Metadata file and annotation merge</h3>
+<p>It is possible to defines component type both in the metadata file (in XML) and by using annotation. However, if a component type defined by using annotations has the same name than a type define in the XML file, the XML descriptor override the annotation defined type. However, a warning message is launched during the manipulation.</p>
+<h3 id="instance-creation">Instance creation</h3>
+<p>The @Instantiate annotation allows creating an instance, but this declaration is limited:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>it does not support configuration</li>
+<li>it does not allow naming</li>
+<li>the instance is created in the global scope (so no composition)</li>
+</ul>
+<p>To define instances, you should use the XML descriptor. Instance can refer to annotated types by referring to their names.</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="nt">&lt;instance</span> <span class="na">component=</span><span class="s">&quot;ipojo.example.hello.impl.HelloImpl&quot;</span><span class="nt">/&gt;</span>

+</pre></div>

+<h3 id="using-custom-annotations">Using Custom Annotations</h3>
+<p>External handlers can provides their own annotations. Using these annotations just requires to add them to your build path. To external handlers annotations, please refer to the external handler documentation.</p>
