Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (FELIX-64) Create a whiteboard adaptor for the HTTP Service
Date Fri, 21 Apr 2006 13:04:56 GMT
OSGi already has a design well underway for a "replacement" of HttpService 
which is whiteboard based and supports bundle based web applications: RFC 
66 Web Container Service.

It needs a bit of clean up and then I will work to get a draft made 
available to the open source communities for comment. But in the meantime, 
Richard can read and comment upon it...

[jira] Commented: (FELIX-64) Create a whiteboard adaptor for the HTTP 


Rob Walker commented on FELIX-64:

We'd need to ensure that there is a standard property and/or API call that 
the HTTP Service can use to determine the alias under which to register 
the servlet automatically.

Not used whiteboard approach myself - but it would seem some common/well 
define OSGi property of the registering bundle/service which the HTTP or 
whiteboard service could retrieve would be the way to go.

> The HTTP Service was defined before the whiteboard approach for services 
became common, so it would be nice to implement a standard adaptor for the 
HTTP Service that implemented this pattern. To be more precise, the 
spec'ed behavior of the HTTP Service requires that servlet instances be 
registered with it explicitly. The whiteboard adaptor would allow servlet 
instances to be registered as services in the service registry and have 
the HTTP Service automatically register them by listening for service
