> A separate issue (bundle based webapps e.g.) would be good. For bundle based webapps
one need IMO framework support on (at least) two different level: An implementation of the
whiteboard pattern for making it easier to use the Http service (see FELIX-64) and OSGi aware
webapp container functionality for enabling communication between servlets in a convenient
> I guess that most people who start using the Http service will develop a "whiteboard
adaptor" so that it is enough for a servlet bundle to register a servlet service together
with a context path, the whiteboard adaptor reacts on the service registration event an register
the servlet in the Http Service. Felix could provide a "standard" implementation of this.
In Cocoon we have an implementation that use the declarative service: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cocoon/trunk/core/cocoon-blocks-fw/cocoon-blocks-fw-impl/META-INF/components.xml,
> The Http service doesn't give much support at all for communication between servlets
and for having reusable servlets. In the Cocoon community we have worked on developing a framework
for block (plugin) based webapps for quite a while (see http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xml-cocoon-dev&m=114237414521595&w=2
for the latest incarnation and http://wiki.apache.org/cocoon/Blocks for a higher level, but
obsolete description).
> This work includes having a light weight OSGi aware webapp container. If there is interest,
the more generic parts (or all of the framework), could be developed together with the Felix
