Re: [ecf-dev] How to catch an Exception while registering a remote service?

Isn't there a way to check the network directly? E.g. by binding on the port?

Sure...Christoph could always attempt to open the desired port prior to calling registerService.

I would say that's maybe not as reliable as responding to the export problem once it occurs...since it's possible that the export could fail for other reasons.   But what you describe may be sufficient.

I also wanted to point out that the topology manager in RSA is defined the way it is so that it can be used to flexibly control/manage export and import.  For example, it can/could also be used on client/consumer to do a retry-to-connect after disconnect...perhaps with exponential backoff, etc.

Hi Christoph,

Hi Everybody, Thanks Wim und Scott for the input on my earlier questions regarding network failures. That helped a lot! Today I am trying to tackle something else that sometimes happens during startup: A service is not correctly registered as a remote service because the address used for the binding is already in use (stack trace see [1]). This happens on site from time to time and I would like to show an error message if it does but I don't know how to catch this event. I register the service with: ServiceRegistration<?> registration = bundleContext.registerService(clazz, service, props); This leads to an exception being logged, but I can't catch it. Actually it looks to me like the returned registration is valid, and it probably is locally.
Yes the registration returned is valid locally.
Is there a setting I could use to have registerService fail if the remote registration fails?
By RSA specification, there is not a pre-defined setting that would have the registerService fail if the remote registration fails. This could be added for ECF, but I'm sort of hesitant to do so (as it would be non-standard), given that there are approaches (discussed below) that can be used to deal with this situation.
Or some other way to detect this error? In my case, the service is only used remotely, so I would really like to know if it couldn't be registered for some reason.
Yes, of course. There are a couple of ways to deal with this technically. First, just a little bit of explanation of the way that RSA behaves: In RSA there's a concept of a 'topology manager' [1]. On the remote service host, the topology manager has the role of a) intercepting the registerService call via the OSGi service hook b) making a decision about whether to export the service (e.g. based upon the service properties and/or other things), c) calling org.osgi.service.remoteserviceadmin.RemoteServiceAdmin.exportService(ServiceReference, Map) to export the service If you look at the RemoteServiceAdmin service exportService method signature [2], you will see that it returns an Collection<ExportRegistration>. In this collection will be at least one instance of ExportRegistration, and in this export registration is access to a Throwable that was possibly thrown by the call to exportService (e.g. because the port was already taken). If everything was exported successfully, the Throwable is null. ECF has a 'default' topology manager (called the BasicTopologyManager) that is present in this bundle: org.eclipse.ecf.osgi.services.distribution. This topology manager is what's called 'promiscuous' because it automatically tries to export *all* appropriate calls to registerService (i.e. those that have the required remote service properties) *and* because it has no means to do so, it can't return the ExportRegistration returned from RemoteServiceAdmin.exportService, but rather it simply logs any export error. With the RSA concept of a topology manager, there are a few ways to get access to these export registrations and the underlying Throwable exception. 1) One way is to register an instance of org.osgi.service.remoteserviceadmin.RemoteServiceAdminListener [3], and the when a export event occurs your listener will be called with the appropriate RemoteServiceAdminEvent. You can then check whether or not the export succeeded by checking whether an Throwable was thrown, and then if it did occur then you can do something else after the registerService call returns. Note that the RemoteServiceAdminListener will be called synchronously by the same thread that calls registerService and RSA.exportService. Actually, all RemoteServiceAdminListeners will be called before RSA.exportService returns. 2) A second way would be to create your own topology manager and replace the BasicTopologyManager with your own. Then you could add logic (by extending the BasicTopologyManager) to check the ExportRegistration returned by RSA.exportService, and if found you could throw a RuntimeException to halt the registerService call. Note you can do many other things by replacing the BasicTopologyManager. 3) A third way would be to simply remove the BasicTopologyManager, and call RemoteServiceAdmin.exportService *directly* in your own application code. You could then get the ExportRegistration returned, check for any exceptions upon export and do whatever was desired/appropriate. I think that each of these would allow you to handle your exceptional cases. They differ a little bit in how much control you have, but it does add a lot of flexibility over the remote service export and import and it's all within specification. Please let all know if this helps.

ECF Version 3.12.0.v20151130-0157 Distribution Provider: generic Discovery provider: zeroconf In case you want to know why this can happen although everything is configured correctly, here is the explanation: An application using remote services is running and works ok. For some reason the user closes the application and restarts it right away. Unfortunately, after the window is gone the application takes some time (2-3 seconds) to actually shut down. If it is restarted to early, the data area is already free (otherwise equinox would already through an error) but the remote binding address is not. Since the error is only logged the restarted application window is shown, but the remote services are not available. From the users point of view it is currently impossible to detect this problem without looking into the log (which our default game operator won't do).
Right, makes perfect sense. Scott
Thanks for your help!
