Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2106) Resolver scoped Repository
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2010 17:52:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2106?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12835850#action_12835850

Guillaume Nodet commented on FELIX-2106:

I may be wrong, but I think another limitation is the fact that you can't access which local
resources are used in the output of the resolution.  All local resource are simply removed.
This may be a problem for Aries because I think we want to know all the bundles that are "part"
of the application somehow.
We might want to consider adding two fields to the resolver to hold mandatory local resources
and optional local resources.

One way to work around that would be to allow the creation of a resolver without the local
repository and be able to add the local repository as an external repository.

I think one way to work around all those issues would be to add a method like:
     Resolver resolver(Repository[] repositories);
     Repository getLocalRepository();
to teh RepositoryAdmin.

> I'm a committer on the apache aries podling and I have been involved

> From what I can tell when you add a repository to RepositoryAdmin it
> has a global effect which means that any other calls to resolve will

> private. I currently remove it again after resolving and synchronise
> so I only resolve one application at a time, but any other
> RepositoryAdmin client will be exposed to my externals.
> I am raising this JIRA to get an enhancement to the Resolver interface to
> add an addRepository method so I can add a repository that is only
> used by that Resolver instance and isn't global.
