Unless it has changed since I messed with it, that
FileServerApplication was some hacky attempt at putting an HTTP server
on front of some repos. It may be an ok starting point but i'd not
put too much weight on it. Perhaps we should just have one thing that
exposes a set of repos through HTTP and is optionally discoverable?
Does that make sense?
Sure. Sounds fine. Adding optional discoverability will be easy.
As for hte UI, p2 users, admin or otherwise, likely have no interest
in "discovery". They just want to nkow what repos are available to be
"added" to their system. So, for example, when someone goes to add a
repo, they might have an option of choosing from "known repos". That
way the list of available repos can be supplied through discovery,
static list, dynamic downloaed list, hard coded, ...
I agree. The ECF service discovery view will not make an
appearance...rather the discovered artifact and meta-data repos will
just appear in a 'known repos' UI.
So I suppose the 'known repos' UI has to added...I guess as another
button (and associated shell/dialog) in the add repo dialog? Unless
it's already there and I haven't seen it.
