Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-756) Allow URLStreamHandler services to override built-in handlers.

Allow URLStreamHandler services to override built-in handlers. 
---------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: FELIX-756
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-756
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: felix-1.2.2
            Reporter: Karl Pauls


In certain cases it might be desirable to override built-in URLStreamHandlers with services
provided by bundles. As of now, the spec doesn't allow this (see 11.3.2 ff) but it might in
the future. Furthermore, it looks like other implementations are less strict on this issue
as we are. For now, the best one can do is to put handlers in the classpath of the framework
and make them available via the java.protocol.handler.pkgs properties. This way, one can override
the built-in handlers but needs control over the jvm (which is not the best solution). 

It should be possible to add an option to felix that will register handlers that proxy the
built-in ones but prefer registered URLStreamHandler services if there is one available for
a given schema.
