Subject [jira] [Created] (KARAF-4829) Make sure configFile in features makes config available early

             Summary: Make sure configFile in features makes config available early
                 Key: KARAF-4829
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-4829
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: karaf-config
    Affects Versions: 4.0.7
            Reporter: Christian Schneider
             Fix For: 4.0.8

We currently have the config and configFile elements in feature files.
Config writes the given entries to ConfigAdmin while configFile writes a file.

So configFile is needed if the user should get a nice file to edit. The problem with configFile
is that ConfigurationAdmin reads the files asyncronously. So bundles of the feature might
already be started at the time the config is written.
So bundles might need to restart or if they only process the config once are in a kind of
invalid state that does not relfect the config from the feature.

So I propose to also write the config to ConfigAdmin if configFile is used. This should allow
the bundles to come up in the correct state from the start.
