Subject [jira] [Updated] (FELIX-4710) Web Console: Display templated name hint for factory configuration entries
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2014 00:51:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4710?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Stefan Seifert updated FELIX-4710:
----------------------------------
    Description: 
currently for each factory configuration entry in the web console only a very cryptic name
is displayed, consisting of the factory PID and a GUID. this is very inconvenient esp. if
there are a lot of entries and the user want to edit a specific one:
!factoryconfig.gif!

proposal: the author of the OSGi service with factory configuration should be able to provide
a "nameHint" template to display a nice human-readable name, and display the pid+gui only
as tooltip:
!factoryconfig_namehint.gif!

attached is a patch with draft implementation of this based on an optional service property
{{webconsole.configurationFactory.nameHint}} which can be set on the service which can reference
other property names with placeholders. the web console then displays this name hint with
the configured values replaced.

this will help on a lot of services, e.g. factory configurations for log configuration an
others.
