Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-1519) Support to download features for later offline usage
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2012 16:04:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1519?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13288646#comment-13288646

Christian Schneider commented on KARAF-1519:

The benefit is for people who only want to use karaf and not learn how to build a distro.
They could simply download karaf, install the needed feature repos. Download the features
and zip up again for internal usage.

Setting up a maven project that does the same using the karaf-maven-plugin is a lot harder.
Especially for people without good maven knowledge. I think there are some more jira issues
around the same general theme. I will search them and link them as related to this issue.
Then we can try to find a design that covers all the requirements. For example instead of
downloading to the system dir we might alternatively create kar files. JB said there is already
an issue for creating kar files via a command. So maybe this already would be good enough.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1519
>             Project: Karaf
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Christian Schneider
>             Fix For: 3.0.0
> The goal is to allow users to download a standard karaf container, add the features they
need and download everything to make the karaf instance standalone.
> It is already possible to install new feature repos and features into karaf. This only
works with a connection to a remote maven repo though. 
> So it would be nice to be able to download the repo file and jars of one or more features
into the system dir of karaf.
> So we might support to download named features or all features of all installed feature
