Subject Re: [DISCUSS] <config/> & <configfile/> in feature (KARAF-4829)
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:16:59 GMT
Hi JB,

1. No, as <configfile> can also be used for all kind of other
configurational files, especially useful for the jetty.xml which isn't part
of the configuration used by ConfigAdmin.
2. No, again Pax-Web needs configfile to work as it is right now ...

regards, Achim

> Some weeks ago we discussed on the mailing list about the fact that a

> This can produce unfortunate behavior as the bundles in the feature can be
> started before the creation of the configuration in ConfigAdmin.
> Christian proposes to create the configuration in ConfigAdmin as soon as

> On the other hand, in Karaf 4.0.5, we improved the <config/> tag: the

> * <config/> will create the configuration in ConfigAdmin and the cfg file
> * <configfile/> will create the cfg file and the configuration in
> ConfigAdmin
