Subject [jira] [Created] (FELIX-3214) Gogo shell bundle should not shut down the framework by default

Gogo shell bundle should not shut down the framework by default

                 Key: FELIX-3214
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-3214
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Gogo Shell
            Reporter: Glyn Normington

Embedding the Gogo shell in Eclipse Virgo, we have found it necessary to set an appropriate
property to prevent the Shell class from shutting down the whole OSGi framework. This behaviour
is rather anti-social from the perspective of embedding Gogo. It means we need to set the
relevant property, e.g. gosh.args=--nointeractive, for each and every way of launching the
Virgo kernel (Startup script, from Eclipse, from integration test framework, from other test
frameworks, etc.). Each time someone launches the Virgo kernel in a new way, they are likely
to hit this gotcha as it is pretty surprising.

The relevant code is in the Shell class:

if (login && interactive && !opt.isSet("noshutdown"))
            System.out.println("gosh: stopping framework");

This affects version 0.8.0 of Gogo.

(It is, of course, conceivable we are using Gogo incorrectly, in which case this issue can
be used to improve the relevant Gogo documentation.)
