Subject DConfigBean Confusion
Date Wed, 06 Dec 2006 00:42:20 GMT
I'm trying to straighten out some classpath problems with the  
deployment code and dconfigbeans and am pretty confused about some of  
the code.

The main thing I'm confused about is that in the geronimo-connector- 
builder module there seem to be two partial sets of DConfigBeans, in  
dconfigbean and in jsr88.  There's some overlap... and a bunch of big  
differences.  It looks to me as if the console is using the stuff in  
jsr88 to build connector plans.

Does anyone know what is going on here and which is more correct?   
Does the connector 1.0 stuff in dconfigbean work?  I think we should  
try to get all these consistent and in one directory.  It would also  
be great to have the console support deploying connector 1.0 rars....  
there's at least one (jaybird) that is only available as a 1.0  


There's another longstanding problem with dconfigbeans which is that  
they've never been able to work from any reasonable standalone  
situation, such as the spec scenario where you get them from a  
DeploymentManager.createConfiguration call since you'd need a large  
fraction of the geronimo server on the classpath to make it work.  I  
think that any solution for this is going to have to use the geronimo  
repository since thats where the zillion jars needed are and are  
likely to stay.  So, I think we have to start a kernel and load a  
configuration and have the Configurers register  with something that  
the DeploymentManagers can get at.

Anyone have a better idea?
