Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCR-3420) Improving Jackrabbit integration within OSGi and other managed environment
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 16:47:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3420?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13449795#comment-13449795

Michael Dürig commented on JCR-3420:

The patch looks quite good to me. 

> 1. Introducing new attribute 'factoryType'...
Is this really necessary? Shouldn't a custom factory just delegate to its predecessor? I.e.
when you do parser.setBeanFactory(beanFactory) couldn't that register the new factory in a
way such that when it can't create an instance it would automatically delegate instance creation
to the previous factory? 
Otherwise, 'factoryClass' instead of 'factoryType' might be an option. That way there is no
need to invent additional "type names" for the factory. 

> 2. We should maybe leave this out of the initial patch until it is used. 

> 3. and 4. 
We can address those separately as we go. For now I think this is a good start.

> While using jackrabbit in managed environment like Sling, Spring etc
> its easy for other components to access the Repository service.
> However its tricky to use managed components of those env within
> Jackrabbit as it creates the instances on its own. To simplify such
> integration it would be helpful if JR exposes a factory service which
> is used to create the various beans from the JR configuration.
> See http://markmail.org/message/johbo2dnepwtjogm for Chetan's initial proposal and POC
