Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARIES-956) Add ability to update the sharing policy of composite subsystems.
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2012 14:19:11 GMT


John Ross commented on ARIES-956:

Further discussion regarding this issue took place outside of JIRA and the mailing lists.
Assuming I understand correctly, the result of that discussion was that a requirement exists
for the ability to update the sharing policy of an already installed composite. I realize
this is all within the context of the broader discussion of updating subsystems in general
but wanted to narrow the scope here to address the immediate issue. Is this scope sufficient?

> I`m looking to implement a "Shared Bundle Subsystem" which is basically a subsystem container
for other subsystems. It looks like there was consideration for this scenario in the spec
as there is talk of an application container in the section which discusses appDependencies.

> I have created a subsystem of type composite to which I am attempting to install an application
subsystem. The problem is that the dependencies for the application subsystem cannot be satisfied
because the manifest of the composite does not import them. At the point that I install the
composite I can't supply the imports because I don't yet know which applications (and therefore
which dependencies) will be installed. 
> Ideally what I was hoping for was an ability to import all available packages into the
composite from the parent (in this case the root subsystem). I have attempted various methods
of achieving this , (e.g. Including an empty bundle in the composite which has a DynamicImport-Package:
*) but nothing seems to work. 
> Can you think of a way of implementing this scenario in the existing Subsystem framework?
It's a fundamental part of what we (used to) do with the old composite bundle framework code
so I`m hoping we can find a solution!
