Subject Re: Is there an OSGI Framework Bundle API for accessing nested archive content?
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 17:07:44 GMT
I think we've put all the jars or wars that could have this file in them in the bundle class
path, so I would expect bundle.getResources() to provide all the possiblilites.  I haven't
tried it in this context, but it seems to work for something similar -- finding META-INF/resources
directories in jars in WEB-INF/lib in wars.

 When the JAR or WAR is packaged in an EAR file, Bundle.getEntry("<war-modulename>.war/WEB-INF/validation.xml")
gets me to the file as WAR file is exploded and repackaged in the EAR whereas Bundle.getEntry("<ejb-modulename>.jar/META-INF/validation.xml")
does not work since the EJB jar is stored as is in the EAR.  One option I can think of is
to get the EJB jar entry, store it to a temporary file, open it with Jar APIs to get to "META-INF/validation.xml".

Or any other way to get to the file of interest without creating temporary files?
