Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4912) Should plugins be packed jar files or exploded?
Date Tue, 20 Oct 2009 02:02:59 GMT


Shawn Jiang commented on GERONIMO-4912:

Seems karaf support exploded bundles already, See:

In addition, the Karaf also supports exploded bundles and custom deployers (blueprint and
spring ones are included by default).

> Currently the osgi framework only works with plugins packed as jar files, not exploded
jar files like the regular geronimo server.  Since osgi can deal with classpaths inside a
 jar file, I rather think that we should proceed with this as standard practice for the rest
of the server.  However this will mean moving the archiving functionality out of the car-maven-plugin
and into the deployer.
> The alternative is to make sure that unpacked plugins actually work in osgi.  I didn't
experiment with this at all.
