SOAP on Equinox [message #105149] Wed, 13 February 2008 21:19 Go to next message

Originally posted by: canadianguy.gmail.com

Hi All,
I'm new to a fair bit of this...

I am investigating various options for a server platform to use for a number
of features. Currently we have several client applications written on the
Eclipse RCP so when it came time to look for a server platform, OSGI on the
server naturally came up as an option.

Most of our products are using SOAP to communicate from one application to
another.

The approach I was hoping to take would be to allow OSGI Bundles (Plugins)
to define SOAP services via an extension point and have an implementation of
Axis pick up these extension points to publish its list of services. What I
can't find is any example of anything like this being done... which I find
surprising. Am I missing something? Is this possible? Does it make sense
to do?

Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated. Also, if something like
this has been done, I would greatly appreciate being pointed towards
tutorials/example code... So far I haven't found a lot of useful information
regarding using SOAP in Eclipse's Equinox and getting services from other
plugins.

Thanks,

-James

Hi James Peltzer,

a few month ago I also have done some research on remote OSGi via SOAP.
I didn't get quite far but I have collected some links which may help you:

Not sure if this helps but their is a tutorial at EclipseCon called RESTFul
OSGi Web Applications. If you are attending EclipseCon if might be worth
checking it out. http://www.eclipsecon.org/2008/?page=sub/&id=462

Thanks for the heads up. I notice there are a number of applicable
tutorials at EclipseCon for what I am trying to develop. Unfortunately, my
timeline has a decision being made well before then.

Thanks,

Thanks for the links. The Nyota project seems to be in the right
direction.... too bad they say it isn't production quality yet.

James,

I think too that your needs for communication could be handled well with Nyota.
Please notice, that the Nyota concept and implementation is contributed to
Eclipse Riena as Riena Communication. Riena provides a 1.0M1 milestone end of
february with communication and security.

http://www.eclipse.org/riena/
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Riena_Project
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Riena_Getting_started_remoteservices

I think that 1.0M1 still have no production quality. We/Riena guys are working
to provide a solid base in the next half year.

Your are welcome stay in touch and bring in you feedback and ideas.

Regards,
Alexander
