Issue with DM and CM

                 Key: FELIX-1201
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1201
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Dependency Manager
    Affects Versions: dependencymanager-2.0.1
         Environment: linux FC10, jdk 1.5, 1.6
            Reporter: Pierre De Rop

I am using DM for configuring my POJOs from Configuration Admin Service.
This issue is actually about a bug, but also ask for a change request:.

1/ first, I think there are two bugs in ConfigurationDependency.java:

- When the configuration is not currently available from CM, POJOs are invoked in their "updated"
method with a null Dictionary
- Morover, DM requires POJO to implement the ManagedService interface, while in the online
doc, it is stated that POJOs just have 
  to provide an "updated(Dictionary)" method signature.

Concerning the null dictionary passed to my updated method: for example:

           .setImplementation(new Log4jConfigurator(property))

-> My Pojo "Log4jConfigurator" is invoked in its "updated" method with a null Dictionary
if the configuration is not yet available from CM.
I have attached to this issue a proposed patch (in ConfigurationDependency.java).
I just check if CM provides a null Dictionary and I just don't activate the dependencies ...

2/ Now, there is something I would like you to add concerning configuration callbacks (I also
have implemeted it in the proposed patch):
Indeed, by default, DM assumes that the pojo implements the org.osgi.service.cm.ManagedService
But the point is: I need my POJOs to be reused outside OSGi; and I don't want to introduce
a dependency over the OSGi CM managed service interface.
Moreover, I need to get injected with several PIDS.

That's why I would like to be able to invoke a method "setCallback" in the ConfigurationDependency
class (like in ServiceDependency.java).
This callback would match a method which takes as parameter a Dictionary.
So, adding such setCallback method would also let me listen to more than one PID like this:

For example:

           .setImplementation(new Log4jConfigurator(property))

The patch attached to this issue sounds like to work fine.

Marcel, WDYT ? 
Could you please commit this patch (and then make a new release of DM) ?

Thanks a lot for your help;
