Equinox has a very nice "servlet bridge" to allow the inclusion of an

I believe that I would be very nice and useful to have an equivalent
"Equinox" solution for embedding an Equinox framework in a generic java
environment.
It also would be very nice to have a "standard" mechanism to allow the
plugins to communicate with the "external" environment.

Best regards,
Sandro

Exactly what I need right now to be honest. Now in order to allow external

bundle that listens to a port, through which I send all the commands in
text. Very uncomfortable and slow.

Greetings,
Boyan.

Yes.
In this days I have been thinking on what kind of "general" model could
be used to communicate with an ambedded framework.

My first idea is that "isolates" could be a nice solutions...

Hello,

do you have any idea how to communicate with the framework besides using
a network connection?
I dont want to use one.
Is it possible to change the Classloaders somehow for example?

Regards,
Gordian

The only way I know is to build a bundle that provides a hook and then
to start the Framework from a java application and exploit the hook.
Essentially there is no other way to get access to the internal classes
and services, because of the strong restrictions. Also that is how
Equinox is started in Tomcat - there is a servlet that gets all the http
requests and then forwards them to a bundle that has defined a hook.

What I would suggest is that you build your application as a bundle. I
is easier to do and you have to deal with less classloader issues.

Greetings,
Boyan.

Gordian,
we use as a "bridge" a "known" static variable in a class that can be
accessed from the framework loader.

This is fast and convenient but maybe not very clean.
It maybe would be better to implement an "isolate" link (??)

Regards,
Sandro

Thank you both.

I made a fragment to the system.bundle that exported the class i needed
to be shared.
