Subject Re: ActiveMQ config-substitution change G2.2 vs G3.0
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 18:11:27 GMT
Hi Russell,

thanks for looking into this in such detail :-)

When I worked on the blueprint and xbean-blueprint conversion I couldn't figure out how to
do this.  Since then I've started thinking that it would make more sense to configure activemq
with Declarative Services rather than blueprint and configure the variable bits such as transports
with the feature that produces a service for every Config Admin configuration (I get lost
in the terminology, I think this is a managed service factory).  However I haven't had any
time to look into this.

not much help but that's where my thinking is at the moment.
