Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-4787) Should the DS implementation depend on R6 core?
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 17:53:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4787?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14305607#comment-14305607

David Jencks commented on FELIX-4787:

I have no strong preference either way.  When I moved java support for felix DS to java 5,
there were a lot of claims that "someone" was using it on earlier javas but no one spoke up
as actually doing so.  I mind the attempt to support earlier frameworks less than I mind the
workaround to support earlier buggy versions of felix config admin.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4787
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: Declarative Services (SCR)
>            Reporter: Carsten Ziegeler
>            Assignee: Carsten Ziegeler
>             Fix For: scr-2.0.0
> Right now the new DS implementation stills tries to run on older frameworks, the bnd.bnd
file claims it works with version 1.4 of the framework api.
> However, the new DS spec includes support for ServiceObjects and DTOs which are part
of core R6 (package version 1.8). There is some effort in the code to still run on an older
framework if these features are not used, but I'm wondering if this is a good idea and how
we ensure that everything is working.
> Now, that we have an official Apache Felix releases that is R6 compliant, I would rather
require this as the minimal version.
> [~djencks] WDYT?
