Subject [jira] Commented: (MYFACES-2290) Add OSGi bundle information and bundle classloader / activator
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2010 18:57:27 GMT


Leonardo Uribe commented on MYFACES-2290:

Jakob did that, so the latest code does not have this problem anymore. It could be good to
know what you did when you repackage myfaces bundles. The idea is make easier for users. Actually,
we have very few examples (2, and only one works without problems), and if we can put an example
using equinox it will be a big help. Really, if we can get this example, it would be great
to create an archetype of this stuff.

> The provided patch will add OSGi information to bundle manifest. A bundle activator class
makes the MyFaces framework aware that it is running in a bundle environment. A bundle classloader
is used to load classes and resources from the bundle classpath. The patch doesn't require
any new runtime dependencies and doesn't affect class loading in a non-OSGi environment. Though,
small modifications to classloading were needed. This was mainly replacing Thread.currentThread.getContextClassLoader()
with ClassUtils methods.
> To run MyFaces in an OSGi environment both bundles (myfaces-api and myfaces-impl) have
to be started in the OSGi container. Additionally, the myfaces-impl bundle has to be made
available to myfaces-api. Use a fragment bundle with myfaces-api as Fragment-Host and myfaces-impl
as Required-Bundle.
