Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-481) Change OBR default repository url
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2008 06:20:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-481?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12570955#action_12570955

Alin Dreghiciu commented on FELIX-481:

You are right. The repository is 6.5Mb at the moment. And it does not contain to many bundles.
So this gets back to my question about performance on the user list, when Richard suggest
But if FELIX-485 gets implemented then it will only affect users using obr without setting
the repositories (via api calls or via sys prop). And I guess this is fine as soon as that's
the repository they need.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-481
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Bundle Repository (OBR)
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
>            Reporter: Alin Dreghiciu
>            Assignee: Stuart McCulloch
>            Priority: Minor
> 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
