Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2786) Allow HTTPService to pick a random free port in a given range
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 19:20:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2786?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12985916#action_12985916

Marcel Offermans commented on FELIX-2786:

Sounds like a good idea, but formally, with OSGi version ranges, 8000 means from 8000 to infinity,
so I don't think we want those semantics. :)

>                 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)".
