Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-1043) Support WebConsole plugins without requiring extending the AbstractWebConsolePlugin
Date Sat, 18 Apr 2009 12:31:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1043?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12700472#action_12700472
] 

Felix Meschberger commented on FELIX-1043:
------------------------------------------

One approach would be to add a new service property -- felix.webconsole.title -- which is
used as the title when rendering the plugin.

This property would als be used as a trigger to have a proxy, which renders the header and
footer (as does the AbstractWebConsolePlugin does) and calls the plugin's service() method
to render the content.

> Currently the web console can be extended by registering a javax.servlet.Servlet service
with a special service property naming the label of the plugin. For ease of use (namely reusing
the header and footer renderings), plugins must extend the AbstractWebConsolePlugin.
> The drawback of this requirement is, that any plugins require a class from the web console
plugin. It would be better to just register a plain servlet which is rendered by the web console
with headers and footers on behalf of the plugin.
