Subject Re: [DISCUSSS] Duplicate persistent-id usage can cause bundle restart loop...

That doesn’t seem entirely accurate to me.

If the bundle location on the config is set to a multi-location any bundle with appropriate
permissions (i.e. all if you aren’t enforcing permissions) will have visibility into the
If the bundle location is set but not to a multi-location then:
- only ManagedService/ManagedServiceFactory instances in that bundle will be notified
- DS and any other well-behaved extender will only use that configuration for components in
that bundle
- both getConfiguration methods and the listConfiguration method will return the configuration
unmodified (permissions allowing)

If the bundle location is null then:
- the first ManagedService/ManagedServiceFactory to get notified will “claim” the configuration
as CA will set the bundleLocation to that of the containing bundle
- code using listConfiguration or getConfiguration(pid, null) won’t “claim” the configuration
- code using getConfiguration(pid) or getConfiguration(pid, location) will set the bundleLocation,
“claiming” it
- extenders such as blueprint or DS should either be implemented using ManagedService/ManagedServiceFactory
or not claim the configuration.  There’s no safe way to identify and claim a configuration
outside of the config admin implementation itself.  Felix DS never modifies the bundle location.
 I’d expect Aries blueprint to have the same situation but haven’t looked.

For maximum flexibility I’d think that karaf should provide a way to specify the bundle
location for a configuration, basically so you can set it to “?”.

Hope this isn’t too long-winded.
