Subject [jira] Updated: (FELIX-1179) FileInstall should recognize Jar files by content instead of extension
Date Tue, 26 May 2009 13:33:45 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1179?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Filippo Diotalevi updated FELIX-1179:

    Attachment: FELIX-1179.txt

The attached patch performs a simple check using the JarFile class constructor
new JarFile(filePath)

In my samples it works well. Do you think it is enough, or there are better ways to do that?

> Currently FileInstall recognizes files of two types: .cfg files and .jar files. I know
there is already a request to have a plugin mechanism in FileInstall to support different
kinds of file types, but that's more of a long term change. In short term, we can modify fileinstall
to recognize Jar files by their content instead of going by just file extensions. It will
allow us to use files like .war files in watched dir.
