Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-1996) Console should warn when config is bound to a different bundle

Console should warn when config is bound to a different bundle

                 Key: FELIX-1996
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1996
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Web Console
    Affects Versions: webconsole-2.0.4
            Reporter: Bertrand Delacretaz
            Priority: Minor

Working on upgrades of an OSGi-based system, which include moving services from one bundle
to another for refactoring purposes, I had several cases where the console didn't display
configuration values correctly, because the configuration was bound to a different bundle
(B) than the one (A) where the corresponding service comes from. 

Usually because the service that uses the config used to be in bundle A, but was moved to
bundle B.

The symptoms are either no fields or values shown on the configuration page at all, or all
name/value pairs displayed in a single textarea instead of individual fields.

IIUC that's because the webconsole cannot access the metadata about the configuration fields
anymore in this case. 

If that's correct, it would be good to have a warning on the configuration page when that
happens, to help troubleshooting such cases.
