I've been working on a few additions to ECF remote services, with the
primary goal of making it easier for others to create and use new Remote
Service distribution providers (I would also like to make it easier for
people to create their own discovery providers, but for the moment I am
focusing on distribution providers).
To this end, what I've done so far is to create a new package in
org.eclipse.ecf.remoteservices API bundle:
package: org.eclipse.ecf.remoteservice.provider 
And added a new service interface: IRemoteServiceDistributionProvider,
an abstract impl class (RemoteServiceDistributionProvider and Builder),
and a helper class for providers that use adapters (AdapterConfig).
I've been trying this new API out with two new distribution providers
that I've been working on:
What one can now do is use the whiteboard pattern to register an impl of
IRemoteServiceDistributionProvider, and this do the ECF setup to allow
for the use of that provider by ECF's RSA implementation.
[2a] and [3a] show two example uses of this provider API for the Jersey
and Hazelcast providers. As you can see, these create an instance of
IRemoteServiceDistributionProvider, and register that instance as a
IRemoteServiceDistributionProvider. That's all that's needed.
Just to be clear, I can/could easily do this with DS doing the service
registration, and may yet do that. I want to have both programmatic and
Any thoughts/comments/criticisms appreciated.
I would like to release this provider API as part of some ECF release.
Technically, we need to have a minor release (including review) with new
API, although I might ask if this could be an exception to the minor
release process...or maybe expedited/simplified in some way, since this
is totally new ECF-specific API, and it's very small.
In any event, I wanted to find out what other committers and/or
contributors were thinking in terms of planning for a minor release.
It might be good to shoot for the third or fourth weeks in Sept...e.g.
21 or 28. Do others have additions that they would like to include in
3.11.0 (or 3.10.2, depending upon what happens WRT the review, etc)?
For example, the new Zookeeper version in Orbit? Other things?
