Richard S. Hall updated FELIX-674:

    Fix Version/s: felix-1.2.0

> Better error reporting when loading bundle classes
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: FELIX-674
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-674
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Framework
>    Affects Versions: felix-1.0.4
>            Reporter: Don Brown
>             Fix For: felix-1.2.0
> We (Atlassian) are in the middle of a rollout of our new plugin
> framework that has Felix at its core.  The plugin system operates on
> top of existing Java webapps as an embedded container, with plugins
> exposing XML configuration defining what plugin extension points they
> implement.  When the plugin is started, the web application needs to
> resolve that class name to a class instance, which is currently
> implemented using Bundle.loadClass().
> However, the Bundle.loadClass() method is swallowing the root cause of
> any exception causing the class to not be resolved, so if it is trying
> to load FooPlugin, which fails due to a missing class dependency of
> FooPlugin, Bundle.loadClass() throws a ClassNotFoundException that
> says FooPlugin wasn't found, which is misleading.  I traced it down
> (version 1.0.4) to ModuleImpl.getClass(), which swallows any
> exceptions by only logging them as a warning.  Unfortunately, the warn
> messages are given a lower priority by the host application due to a
> number of warnings that happen as a natural part of the loading
> sequence.
> This ticket asks for better error reporting ideally through proper chained exceptions.
