Use ECF as generic HTTP based service? [message #624664] Fri, 26 December 2008 17:21 Go to next message

I want to write a small Firefox browser extension which "analyse" Java
stacktraces and opens the correct file and location in Eclipse JDT, by a
simple mouse click.

Since the remote call probably talks simple HTTP, I need to implement some
HTTP based listener to react on the client/browser request. Should I have
a look into ECF for this? Or are there better methods of implementing this
rather simple feature?

Many thanks,

Tung

It sounds to me like you could just use the OSGi httpservice, and the
Jetty implementation that comes with Equinox for this...rather than
creating a whole new http impl via ECF.

See the help links for http servlet extension point here [1] and for the
Equinox server docs here [2].

If you want more information about the equinox http service please let
us know.
