Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-481) Change OBR default repository url
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2008 05:16:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-481?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12570942#action_12570942

Stuart McCulloch commented on FELIX-481:
----------------------------------------

FYI, I would not advise using the OSGi Alliance repository as the default, because it takes
several minutes to download.

> By default (if no repository is configured) BundleRepository uses http://oscar-osgi.sourceforge.net/obr2/repository.xml
as a default repository. As Richard mentioned on the mailing list this repository is more
a "didactic" repository.  Having this repo is somehow then useless and adds confusion to the
unexperimented (e.g. one has a wrong spelled config "obr.repository.url". In that case the
default is used => expected bundles will not be found)
> I suggest the following alternatives:
> 1. No default => fail to initialize with an misconfiguration exception
> 2. use the osgi alliance repository
> 3. use a (to be created) felix obr repository
