Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-481) Change OBR default repository url
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2008 05:03:07 GMT
Change OBR default repository url 

                 Key: FELIX-481
                 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
            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
