Re: [eclipselink-users] Does OSGI work?

I have not tried #1 or #3. We use #2.

I posted this in an earlier thread today (maybe before you joined the
list, so I'll repeat).
I'll do my best, maybe explaining our set up will help you.

 util.jpa: Contains a special EntityManagerFactoryFactory :) This
takes care of all the config in one place.

 It takes 2 parameters:
  String persistenceUnitName,
  ClassLoader yourClassLoader

So let's say i have my project
 myproj.model which contains entities, and a persistence unit. To
"connect" this project to EclipseLink, I just call:
this.getClass().getClassLoader());  in the Activator of the plugin,
now i have an EntityManagerFactory that can be used in my project to
get new EntityManagers. So the EmfFactory handles creating the
database connection and setting up an EntityManagerFactory.

The golden rule with the OSGI stuff is Managed Entities CANNOT cross
classloader boundries. However, you can keep mappedsuperclasses in a
different classloader, that's fine.

If you would like more details about our RCP/OSGi set up please let me
know, I plan on creating a blog post about it anyway.

Hope this helps.

That clear things up any?
