Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-5184) CLONE -Optional resource refs
Date Mon, 15 Mar 2010 20:19:27 GMT
CLONE -Optional resource refs

                 Key: GERONIMO-5184
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: deployment
            Reporter: Peter H
            Assignee: David Jencks
             Fix For: Wish List

Right now, all resource refs (and other jndi entries) specified in a spec-dd must be resolved
during deployment or building the configuration will fail.  It's possible that some resource
refs are optional and that the app can function to  some extent with them missing.

We could support this by including an optional "optional" marker in the geronimo plan. The
simplest implementation would attempt to resolve the ref to an object name present during
deployment, and use it if the name is found, and bind nothing if the name is not found.  Then
the app would get a naming exception at runtime if it tried to look up the missing resource.

We should decide what should happen when the entire target object name is supplied.  We could
use it to bind a reference, or only bind a reference if the gbean is present at deploy-time.
