Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-779) Set Priority for InfoProvider
Date Sat, 30 Jul 2011 13:53:09 GMT

Glen Mazza commented on KARAF-779:
----------------------------------

It's not just top or bottom--since you can have multiple sources of custom info data you'll
probably want the ability to arrange the multiple sources as well.

Perhaps a priority level should be added to both the Karaf-Info manifest entry and the InfoProvider
interface (the two ways to add custom information right now).

There are many ways to do the priority numbering.  Here's one possibility: the current Karaf
default info would have always have a priority of zero, anything you want "on top" would have
a negative priority number (the more negative, the more "on top"), anything you'd want at
the bottom would have a positive priority number (the larger the number the more at the bottom.)
 If not provided, the default priority level for any custom info would be "1", meaning it's
placed at the end of the standard info.  Further the specific ordering of any custom info
sharing the same priority is undefined -- customs infos with the same priority can go in any
order alongside other custom infos that share the same priority level.

With just one person requesting this, the above is quite possibly overkill. OTOH this is functionality
that enhances Karaf's branding capabilities.

> It is possible to extend the karaf info command with custom information and it would
be great to define the priority it, e.g. if the info should be added at the top or bottom
of the list.
