Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2274) 404 when plugin is missing
Date Mon, 12 Apr 2010 16:08:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2274?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12856043#action_12856043

Justin Edelson commented on FELIX-2274:

> Well, actually at this point the plugin is not available anymore, so it can't redirect.

Hmmm. You said "a plugin developer might decide to show the plugin..." so why couldn't the
plugin developer choose to show a different servlet? But if you're talking about a plugin
registered via SCR or Blueprint, this would be more challenging (although not impossible).

 >And it's not confusing, because at the top, the bundles tab will be rendered as "selected".

Which will result in "But I asked for the [fill in the blank] plugin!" And they're going to
click on the [fill in the blank] button again... and again... and again...

All I'm suggesting is that you have to have some message to the user.

>            Reporter: Valentin Valchev
> Currently the Web Console generates 404 (page not found) error, when a plugin is missing.
> But a plugin developer might devicide to show the plugin, only when all required services
are available. If the user already opened the web console, the label for such plugin will
be rendered. After that, a required service is unregistered and so is the plugin.
> At this point, when the user clicks on the label, the Web Console will generate 404.
> IMHO, it's will be better, if the web console simply redirects to the default plugin
