Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-2786) Allow HTTPService to pick a random free port in a given range
Date Tue, 18 Jan 2011 17:19:43 GMT
Allow HTTPService to pick a random free port in a given range
-------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: FELIX-2786
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2786
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Service
    Affects Versions: http-2.0.4
            Reporter: Holger Hoffstätte
            Priority: Minor


Sometimes we cannot configure the used port for a HTTPService up front, so it would be nice
to have the service select one itself; the chosen port would then have to be communicated
to the outside world. Since it should not just select any random port e.g. for security reasons,
it should be possible to specify a range as property.
Marcel suggested a port config value along the lines of port="random" or port="pick-from-range(8000,9000)".
