Subject Re: Proposal: New Lock for failing Karaf start if running
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2015 09:15:22 GMT
Hi Fabian,

the purpose is also to be able to "prepare" the slave instance, so the 
instance has to be started somehow.

However, what you propose could make sense in some use case. Maybe we 
can add a karaf.lock.exclusive property to define this behavior.
