Subject Would anyone be against simply copying the lifecycle standards from OSGi?
Date Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:45:53 GMT
They're the most flexible. Quick overview of the life cycle in OSGi:

installed -> resolved -> (starting) -> active -> (stopping) resolved ->

Installed is the initial state. Resolved is when all its dependencies have
been fulfilled. During the starting state, if there is an error, then it
goes back to resolved. Active for while it's, well, active. Stopping puts
the thing back into resolved. Then, if you go from resolved to uninstalled,
this means that it's no longer available for use (and the only reason you'd
find something in this state for very long is due to a memory leak).

Any objections? This would make our LifeCycle interface more compatible
with OSGi while providing a well-understood standard for the life cycle of
plugin-type objects.
