Subject Re: The future of the Spring with Fabric8
Date Tue, 17 Jun 2014 07:01:01 GMT
Just my two cents on Spring+OSGi :)

Spring DM isn't the way the modern Spring applications are supposed to
look like. It was good for Spring 2.x and early 3.x . Spring Boot and
Spring Data are becoming the Spring mainstream. The XML configuration
is officially not recommended anymore by Spring guys. Pivotal has
officially shown the middle finger to the OSGi. Try to run the
bleeding-edge Spring Boot + Spring Data using Spring DM - good luck
with it ;) .

I personally see no point in reanimating Spring DM. Let's face it -
Spring Boot with all its classpath magic won't ever work well in OSGi.
And Spring Boot is the future of Spring. I've seen too many people
crying their eyes out because of the Spring+OSGi rough edges to
believe that this is the right way of using Spring.

-1 for Spring in OSGi
+1 for Spring deployed to non-OSGi containers and managed by Fabric8

Cheers.

So far Fuse/RedHat staff which are part of Aries team was so kind and they have added support
for blueprint-noosgi environment which allows to run Aries under tomcat and other non-osgi
environments. As it remains in main development branch for this project I suppose it is somehow
supported by project team.

is rather a question for Karaf community. It would be good idea to resurect spring dm (as
a new project?). We have Aries blueprint and, I think so, we don't need a big integration
with Spring including next blueprint implementation. But it would be nice to have a good (extension
to Aries?) integration allowing registering Spring beans in Osgi registry and working with
no issues when communixating with blueprint bundles
