Subject Re: Add Configuration to Bundle at Install
Date Mon, 21 Feb 2011 00:43:38 GMT
AFAIK, you have to do this in code. But it isn't a lot of code :)

Take a look at the Activator in the jackrabbit server bundle. Either
on bundle start or when the ConfigAdmin service becomes available
(which ever comes first), the verifyConfiguration() method is called.

This method does the following:
* lists the configurations for the factory PID
* if there aren't any configurations for the PID, create a default one
and save it.

You could also use JCRInstall or FileInstall. These will let you
install a default configuration. HOWEVER, only writing code will let
you have logic like "only create this configuration if there aren't
any for this PID" (which is the true meaning of a default
