Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2110) The resolver should be able to resolve for some requirements in addition to resources

Guillaume Nodet commented on FELIX-2110:
----------------------------------------

Ok, I'll have a look, but this forces the user to actually implement Resource and Requirement.
I don't really see the point in forcing the user doing so.

I think the resolver concept is not to resolve a set of resources, but to resolve a set of
requirements.  If the requirement is 
   bundle:(&(symbolicname=xxx)(version=yyy))
then so be it.
But the use cases I had in mind is the an easy way to say "OBR, you're kinda smart: give the
set of bundles so that I can have this service".  Or  "What do I have to deploy if I need
the xxx package".  

Currently, the loop is done a resource, but I think it would be cleaner to resolve a requirement.

> Another way would be to create a fake resource with the requirement.  This works as long
as you don't want to actually install, because the resolver would then need a real resource.
 So in all cases, the resolver need to know about those resources, so it may be easier to
let him create and handle those completely.
