Hi Virgoers,

In the Virgo proposal [1], the ECF project is listed as a potential integration target...at least partially because with our upcoming 3.2 release [2] we have a full, multi-transport implementation of the OSGi 4.2 remote services standard [2] that can be easily integrated with Virgo/Spring framework.

An ECF community member and Spring user (Angelo Zerr) has created a very small/simple bundle that accomplishes this integration between ECF remote services and Spring. The associated bug is here [4]. He is willing to contribute this bundle to either ECF or the Virgo project under the EPL.

Which project/where to contribute this bundle is an open question, though, as it has dependencies on both ECF core code, and Spring (for...e.g. FactoryBean, InitializingBean, DisposableBean among other interfaces). FWIW, whatever works out the easiest for all involved is ok with me.

I don't know what the plans are for Virgo package names...we can easily refactor this integration code to use whatever is decided once Virgo gets going.

But in any event, I wanted to let the Virgo community know that this work has been started/done. I think it makes a great example of a nice/simple/standards-based integration and a terrific example of open, cross-project collaboration and community-based contribution.

Hi Scott

Yes, this looks very promising. The Virgo kernel can easily be configured to launch a set of ECF bundles to produce an ECF-capable server. Angelo's work could be configured in too.

It would be useful to know a definitive list of the necessary ECF bundles for this environment. Once we have some p2 integration in place, Virgo could load these bundles from its repository chain. Or if we can grab copies of the bundles, these could be placed in the Virgo kernel's own repository so we could make progress before p2 is integrated.

Let's discuss this in more detail once we have a Virgo build to play with. Meanwhile drawing up a definitive list of ECF bundles would be really useful.

Hi Glyn and Scott
Any updates on this topic? Is there any intent to integrate ECF in Virgo?
I'm desperately trying to run 2 instances of Virgo on 2 separate machines and have the bundles from machine A requiring services provided by bundles from machine B, but it's very difficult.
Any idea or suggestion that could get me on the way?

Regards,
Lorie
