Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-4851) ConfigAdmin only forwards ConfigurationEvents to ConfigurationListeners which are provided by bundles that are in state ACTIVE
Date Sat, 11 Apr 2015 13:13:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4851?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14491019#comment-14491019

Simon Chemouil commented on FELIX-4851:

Oh thanks a lot. We're facing the same problem that has been plaguing us for some time, and
I was thinking to try to find exactly what's happening this afternoon, but you just made that
useless :).

My workaround so far has been to call configAdmin.getConfiguration(configPid, null).update(properties);
after all bundles are in the ACTIVE state, which is very ugly. 

I believe this fix alone, if it's approved, warrants a new release!

I might as well report that Felix SCR's "scr:info" Gogo command is outputing wrong info when
the problem happens; it seems it has no way to tell a component is unsatisfied because the
required configuration was not provided, an instead the first required service reference is
stated as unsatisfied, even though the service is indeed provided and used elsewhere in the
same bundle.

>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Configuration Admin
>    Affects Versions: configadmin-1.8.2

> 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.
