Subject Mapping classloaders back to bundles
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2009 18:36:28 GMT
I've run into another place where a method that previously use a 
classloader argument now takes a bundle, and I'm not sure what the 
appropriate method for mapping this back to a bundle would be.  This is 
in the EJBHelper class, where it's doing this:

 attributeStore.setValue(absName.getArtifact(), absName, gAttributeInfo, propertyValue, Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader());

the class loader involved is the thread context class loader, which we 
might be able to map to a bundle, but this might be a case where it 
might be appropriate to just take a classloader in this context.  The 
classloader passed to the setValue() method is just used to resolve a 
property class from a class name, and this need not necessarily be 
sourced from a bundle instance.  If we still feel we need to use a 
bundle, then I think we need to have a utility of some sort that can 
attempt to figure out from a class loader instance what the bundle 
mapping is.
