Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2786) Allow HTTPService to pick a random free port in a given range
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 19:22:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2786?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12985918#action_12985918

Carl Hall commented on FELIX-2786:
----------------------------------

I commented on users@felix but to leave a note here as well.  I'd like to work on this and
hope to have a patch in soon (~1 week).  If this should be assigned to me, I'd be fine with
that.

>             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)".
