Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-2342) Consider modifying to use serp.bytecode.BCClass.getDeclaredInterfaceNames instead of getDeclaredInterfaceTypes.

Yes, that's fine. Thank you.

> This issue occurs when the Apache Aries Proxy weaving hook gets called before the Apache
Aries JPA weaving hook. Proxy weaves the class with the WovenProxy interface and adds the
necessary dynamic package imports. JPA then gets called and uses PCEnhancer which, in turn,
calls BCClass.getDeclaredInterfaceTypes, which ultimately calls Class.forName using the woven
interface's name. The class loader is from the bundle whose class is being woven. Per the
OSGi spec, dynamic imports do not take effect until after the entire weaving process is complete.
Consequently, the bundle's class loader does not yet have visibility to the class.
> One solution to this, at least in the Aries case, is to order the weaving hook calls
using the osgi service ranking property. However, all weaving hook services with potential
conflicts may not be under the control of the same entity.
> Basically, is using the information from BCClass to determine whether
or not the class has already been woven. It's only interested in knowing if the PersistenceCapable
interface is there. It seems that BCClass.getDeclaredInterfaceNames avoids the Class.forName
call and could be used instead, particularly considering that only the class names are compared.
