Subject [jira] [Created] (FELIX-3720) Designate's pid attribute is optional and not mandatory
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 06:06:02 GMT
Alexander Berger created FELIX-3720:

             Summary: Designate's pid attribute is optional and not mandatory
                 Key: FELIX-3720
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-3720
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Metatype Service
    Affects Versions: metatype-1.0.4
            Reporter: Alexander Berger

In class org.apache.felix.metatype.MetaDataReader method readDesignate the "pid" attribute
of a "Designate" element is read as required attribute:

       designate.setPid( this.getRequiredAttribute( "pid" ) );  
       designate.setFactoryPid( this.getOptionalAttribute( "factoryPid" ) );

This is wrong as according to the Metatype Service Specification (Version 1.2) the attributes
"pid" and "factoryPid" are both optional but at least one of these two must be present (either
"pid" or "factoryPid"). Thus the code should be changed to something like this:

        final String pid = this.getOptionalAttribute( "pid" );
        final String factoryPid = this.getOptionalAttribute( "factoryPid" );
        if ( pid == null && factoryPid == null ) {
        	missingAttribute("pid or factoryPid");
        designate.setPid( pid );
        designate.setFactoryPid( factoryPid );
