Subject Suggested solution for multiple java processes accessing felix cache in embedded more
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2017 02:02:08 GMT
We have a use case where we trying to use felix in embedded mode. But we have
a bunch of background jobs that run in parallel which initiate a new java
process ending up accessing the same felix cache. 
And we are using the storage clean onFirstInit flag while starting the
So in some scenarios when a race condition happens, on guy ends up deleting
the cache, while other one things installation is successful and retrieval
What is the recommended pattern to solve this ?
where we have 'n' java processes (n could be even 100+) , using embedded
felix ?

Is using a unique felix-cache directory for each process good solution? do
we run any risk. What are do and don't. In some cases some java processes
may get killed abruptly.

Re-using the same felix-cache without clean flag may get us into some issues
as we see that felix stores some state information about bundles in the
directory, so re-use may not be a good option.
