Subject [jira] [Reopened] (FELIX-4851) ConfigAdmin only forwards ConfigurationEvents to ConfigurationListeners which are provided by bundles that are in state ACTIVE

David Bosschaert reopened FELIX-4851:
      Assignee: David Bosschaert  (was: Guillaume Nodet)

I had actually worked on a slightly different fix. After discussing with [~gnt] we decided
to use my approach which allows events to be sent to bundles in STARTING and ACTIVE states,
but not in all other states. For example it is not desirable to have events sent to bundles
in the STOPPING state.

>          Components: Configuration Admin
>    Affects Versions: configadmin-1.8.2
>            Reporter: Jens Offenbach
>            Assignee: David Bosschaert
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: configadmin-1.8.4
> I am facing a serious problem with the Felix ConfigAdmin in combination with Felix SCR.
Let us assume that the SCR bundle becomes activated at last and activates a component that
creates a configuration which itself is a precondition for the instantiation of another component
(ConfigurationPolicy#REQUIRE). In this case the Felix ConfigAdmin does not deliver the configuration
update event to SCR, although SCR has registered a ConfigurationListener in the OSGi Service
> The problem is caused by line 2029 of the class ConfigurationManager (Version: 1.8.3-SNAPSHOT):
> {code}
> if ( listenerProvider[serviceIndex].getState() == Bundle.ACTIVE && this.listeners[serviceIndex]
!= null )
> {code}
> In this scenario, the SCR bundle is in state STARTING and reaches the ACTIVE state directly
after all available components have been activated. Because of missing Configuration Events
caused by the Felix ConfigAdmin, SCR is not able to activate all those components whose preconditions
are actually fulfilled. The problem does not occur in combination with the Equinox ConfigAdmin,
which does not make the problematic bundle state check.
> I highly recommend removing the bundle state check and change line 2029 into:
> {code}
> if ( this.listeners[serviceIndex] != null ).
> {code}
> It is up to the developer to decide, in which bundle state configuration events are considered
to be important or not. In the SCR scenario, the developers rely on the fact that configuration
events are delivered independently of their bundle state.
