Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARIES-938) Proposal: SPI Catch (plug-in discovery for both plain Java >=5 and OSGi)
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 09:57:03 GMT


David Bosschaert commented on ARIES-938:

I reviewed the code during the email exchange about this topic, see here:
and support this submission as I find this an interesting way to 'ease your way into OSGi',
by using services that work both inside OSGi and out.

The approach is different from PojoSR ( Connect (
in that rather than introducing the OSGi Service Registry APIs early, it actually does not
introduce the OSGi APIs at all which some people may find a more attractive way to work.

> As discussed in 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.
