Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-3084) Submission of source code for review of software grant for lightweight HTTP service implementation.
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2011 16:14:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-3084?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13116576#comment-13116576

Richard S. Hall commented on FELIX-3084:

As stated in http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/ip-clearance-template.html:

A software grant must be provided to the ASF. This grant can either be done by the ASF Corporate
CLA (via Schedule B) or the traditional License Agreement. Acceptable methods of sending the
grant to the ASF includes:

    snail-mail to the ASF office and/or ASF officer
    FAXing to the ASF office and/or an ASF officer
    Emailing the scanned document to secretary@apache.org and legal-archive@apache.org.

> This issue is created as part of the process outlined in the "Contributing Source Code"
Felix page as suggested by Richard Hall in issue FELIX-538[1].  The source code attached[6]
to this issue is an implementation of the OSGi HTTP Service specification version 1.2.  The
code is based on Richard's original server which is also referenced in FELIX-538, and the
remaining code was developed by me, with the exception of a few classes which were adapted
from existing Felix sources[2].
> Design constraints for this project were backwards compatibility, simplicity, and size.
 The code base consists of 23 Java files in 3 packages.  The source is divided into "osgi",
"server", and "servlet" packages according to the primary purpose of the class, and interfaces
are utilized to keep the three domains fairly isolated[3].  The minimal compiled jar which
does not include the servlet API or OSGi API currently is 41Kb, and the dependency-free jar
with all necessary APIs is 125Kb.  An Ant script is provided that will build the jars and
a CI server is also available for binary builds[4] and javadocs[5].
> In terms of features the server doesn't offer:
> -Authentication
> -Cookie support
> -Session support
> In addition several aspects of the Servlet implementation have not been tested including:
> -Multipart POST
> -PUT
> -Non-default character encodings
> And as of the submission several Servlet API methods are unimplemented in (all unimplemented
methods throw org.apache.felix.http.lightweight.servlet.UnimplementedAPIException):
> -HttpServletRequest(Impl)
> -HttpServletResponse(Impl)
> However the core functionality has been implemented and tested and the Felix Web Admin
application can be hosted with this HTTP Service implementation.
> I plan in continuing to use the service in personal and professional projects and would
be happy to continue to add unimplemented features and maintain the code base as a Felix committer.
> Thanks!
