[equinox-dev] Re: [GSoC] Restlet integration with Equinox

Hi Scott, Rajeev and all,

Thanks for your interest Rajeev in this GSoC project.

Scott, it seems that the integration of Restlet with ECF could give you with fully-featured server-side REST support. This would also be a nice use case for the GSoC "Restlet integration with Equinox" project.

I've recently created a wiki page for this project. Maybe we could propose another GSoC project for this specific topic?

"ECF integration"

Otherwise, Restlet 2.0 (currently in RC stage) fully supports asynchronous request processing on both server-side and client-side so it looks like a good fit for your ECF requirements. It also nicely integrates with Jetty 7.0.

Best regards,

Hi Rajeev, Simon, Bryan,

FYI, there is already quite a lot of REST support in the Eclipse
Communication Framework (ECF) project, which is part of Eclipse RT along
with Equinox. Below are some relevant links to the existing work here.

One of the things that we *haven't* completed/done with REST is to
create support for restful OSGi remote services on the host/server. The
existing REST work is mostly) focussed on supporting Equinox/OSGi-based
REST clients. Work on restful remote services would be a great area for
work IMHO...especially since it can be (and in my opinion should be)
easily connected to the OSGi 4.2 remote services standard implementation
that ECF already provides.

I notice that you (Rajeev) go to the University of Moratuwa. Perhaps
coincidently, last year ECF had a gsoc project led by another student at
Moratuwa...he's now working with us as an ECF contributor...and I've
copied him on this email. Perhaps you might want to contact him directly.

familiar with OSGi and RESTful web-services, but new to Restlet and
now in the process of getting familiarized with it.

I'd like to know whether there have already been initiatives to
accomplish this by Equinox community (apart from the Restlet's
resources available at GSoC ideas page) so that I can get myself
synchronized. I could hardly find anything on this from the Equinox
developer mailing list.
I appreciate your comments and suggestions regarding this project.
