Re: [ecf-dev] Run Eclipse Remote Service Admin on Apache Karaf

Hi Scott,

I'm working with Petia on an EU research project. We are still evaluating OSGi runtimes and Remote Service Admin implementations (ECF vs. Apache CXF). If we decide to use Apache Karaf and ECF we will test and document how to use it.

Ok, that sounds great.   How about this...working with you and and Petia, I will also endeavor to create a remote services code example that uses Apache Karaf/ECF RS/RSA.   Then, hopefully we'll come out of this with test, documentation, and example code.

BTW, it may not be obvious to all on this I'll restate:   ECF's provider architecture allows the plugging/replacing of the two major components of the OSGi Remote Services/RSA:  distribution and discovery.   You can see some documentation about RS/RSA support and this provider architecture here [1].

What this means is that based upon application-level and/or dev/deploy or interoperability needs, you can use any of the following existing providers:


ECF generic (default)
Restlet [2]
JMS [2]
JavaGroups [2]


Apache Zookeeper

Or, if you wish, you can extend an existing provider, and/or create a new provider.

By the way, Apache Karaf exists at least since 1-2 years and is used a lot in EU research.

Ok...I meant that I wasn't personally aware of it didn't exist until recently :).
