Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2288) Felix SCR API problem/misunderstanding
Date Tue, 03 Aug 2010 09:49:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2288?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12894859#action_12894859

Felix Meschberger commented on FELIX-2288:

Fixed the Web Console in Rev. 981795 by adding support for components whose component ID is
not assigned. Instead of the component ID a combination of the component name and the service.pid
property assigned to the component is used. If the service.pid property is not assigned to
the component, just the component name is used.

>                 Key: FELIX-2288
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2288
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Declarative Services (SCR), Web Console
>            Reporter: Valentin Valchev
>            Priority: Critical
> I've been playing with the Components plugin of the Web Console and it work perfectly
with the Felix SCR implementation. When I switched to ProSyst/Equinox implementation (they
are basically the same) I found a small problem.
> When I disable a component, it's ID becomes -1 and I cannot enable it anymore. As long
as I disable components all their IDs becomes -1.
> I opened the OSGi r4.2 specification to see if there is a reason for this behaviour.
The JavaDoc for ComponentConstants states for the component ID, that 
> "The value of this property is assigned by the Service Component Runtime when a component
configuration is created."
> In part 112.6 Component Properties, the specification says, that 'component.id' property
is always added by the SCR but for "Each component configuration".
> When a component is disabled or uninstalled, there is no configuration - it's just a
component definition. So the SCR is not required to assign ID.
> As for the Web Console we can easily fix the problem by using the pair bundle + component
name for identification, instead of ID. However, since Apache SCR API is becoming recommended
OSGi API, it would be better to define a mature and compatible API.
