             Summary: Proposal: SPI Catch (plug-in discovery for both plain Java >=5 and
OSGi)
                 Key: ARIES-938
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARIES-938
             Project: Aries
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jeremias Maerki


As discussed in http://aries.markmail.org/thread/i2vgjryf5caitqmy I propose a new component
for Apache Aries, code-named "SPI Catch", as a complement to SPI Fly.

SPI Catch provides an abstraction to plug-in discovery that for libraries that make use of
the JAR service provider mechanism (through META-INF/services) to discover plug-ins. It shields
the client from OSGi specifics but all the same offering the dynamics provided through the
OSGi service registry. It is an deal counter-part to Apache Aries SPI Fly which is used to
publish SPI providers as OSGi services. And finally, another focus is on preserving the runnability
totally outside of OSGi.
