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

Karl Pauls resolved FELIX-756.

    Resolution: Fixed

If you start felix with:


(a system property) then overriding should work with the current trunk. Please test this issue
and close it if it is working for you. This will make it into 1.4.0 so we need feedback fast
if it is not working for you.

>             Fix For: felix-1.4.0
> 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.
