RE: [higgins-dev] Re: [Bug 190604] Allow context providers to be loaded by a unique classloader

Since I submitted that enhancment request, we at ALF have implemented a custom classloader the loads and runs our RP agent
in isolation (since being a servlet filter we don't want the RP libraries to interfere with the protected application libraries - situation
very similiar to the context providers).
We ran into two areas of "trickiness" :
* anything returned from objects instantiated in the "isolation" classloader must be proxied to
   instances in the calling classloader
* if the isolating classloader must not load JCE providers (for example axis2 and xml-security
   rely on Bouncy Castle and load it in in the global registry
We would be happy to contribute it alongside with the corresponding know-how expertise
to Higgins whenever it is ready to be implemented. Let me know whenever about to do it and
I will try to help with whatever I could.
Best Regards,

The thread that spawned this bug is here.  If I had been a exceptional Higgins citizen, I would have logged similar defects for any Higgins component which has the ability to load "pluggable modules".  I wasn't being exceptional,  so I only did the one for IdAS.  I'm still not being exceptional, so I'm only assuming that as this applies to these other components, their owners will make sure the issue gets addressed somehow.

Hi all,

I'm a bit new to this bug processing.. I just changed the status of this one to "ASSIGNED".

Actually what this bug says "Allow context providers to be loaded by a unique classloader" is possible with my new IdASRegistry.. There's a method that lets you set the class loader to be used for instantiating context factories.

I guess I wait a bit more until my stuff has been reviewed / adjusted / integrated with IdAS and then change it to "RESOLVED".
