Subject Re: OSGI for S4
Date Sat, 08 Oct 2011 16:24:37 GMT

Looks like the code structure for s4-piper is different from s4 repo.

Is the piper suppose to replace the s4-core module of the s4?
Sorry if I miss something obvious.

can also use it to build adaptors to non-s4 events. We can use the osgi
mechanisms for declaring dependencies such as app2 depends on app1 and for
app2 to do: app1.subscribeStream(anApp2Stream) so app2 can get events from
app1. Unless an app uses an EventSource, its events will not be exported.
This will create good isolation and make it easier to add a security layer
around apps. Both Stream and EventSource implement Streamable.

For dynamic deployment we can use file install bundle, it will watch
