Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-528) Support nested folders in fileinstall
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2008 07:25:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601540#action_12601540

Peter Kriens commented on FELIX-528:

Yes, I should have reacted earlier, sorry. I looked at it when it was registered and I was
not sure if  liked the idea in the first place,
nor did it seems to have priority because it can already be achieved by adding more directories
to watch.

1. One we can only make it backward compatible by adding a flag (I usually have a nested folder
2. Multiple folders are already supported with Configuration Admin. E.g. adding a simple text
file in your watched directory 
    can already add a new directory to be watched, ad infinitum.
3. Nested directories can easily be a very large set, it is hard to see the scope. 

I like to keep things as simple as possible, this kind of stuff bloats quickly, however small
each feature might be. Now I am not
the boss so if you get some other people that feel strong about it we can discuss it further.

> Currently FileInstall just supports "flat" jar-Files as bundles in its load folder.
> How about supporting (nested) folders?
> This way, you could:
> 1. just drop an arbitrary folder structure and fileinstall would install all bundles
> 2. you could enable/disable entire "bundle-sets" with:
> 2a. in/move it out of the folder
> 2b. rename the folder with prefix that means "unrecognized folder"
> Just a thought..
