Re: [equinox-dev] Influencing component start with DS

There is no interface for hooking in to DS in that way, but you could implement the same thing with a service.  Your logic could sit in it's own bundle checking it's criteria.  When the criteria is met it publishes some dummy service.  The Service Component would be dependent on the service, so when the service is published the component will be activated.

[equinox-dev] Influencing component start with DS

Imagine a scenario where a service component should only start if certain environment
criteria is met. One way to handle this would be that the criteria is represented as
a property in the component meta-data and the component can use it at runtime to decide
to shut itself down if the criteria is not met. The downside of such approach is that
the component code is now contaminated with the criteria.

Is there a mechanism that allows to plug-in additional logic to SCR runtime to
influence whether a component should be started ?
