Subject Well-known property name for induced factory configuration
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2009 18:54:24 GMT
Hi all

In a comment to FELIX-1221 [1] Tim Moloney proposes the definition of a
well-known configuration property, which may act as kind of an alias for
the service.pid property automatically generated by the Configuration
Admin Service upon factory configuration creation.

Such a property would serve multiple purposes:

  * Provide a human readable identifaction of a factory
    configuration (at least more human readable than the generated PID)

  * Provide an alias for tools match factory configurations to external
    data for synchronization. Candidates of such tools are:
            - File Install
            - Karaf Features
            - Sling JCR Install (similar to File Install)
            - Web Console

Currently each tool uses its own approach and its own name. Having a
common name would simplify things probably and would allow the Web
Console to better identify configurations etc.

The name could be something like felix.servicePid or so....
