Subject [jira] Commented: (KARAF-151) Implement an assembly 'extract' deployment option, with automatic detection of feature repositories
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2010 05:12:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-151?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12913399#action_12913399

Guillaume Nodet commented on KARAF-151:

No, you're right you would not be able to use the osgi:install command.
That said, another solution would be to use a dedicated command:
   features:archive xxxx
or something like thtat.

The downside I see to using a URL handler and a bundle installation is that you actually end
up with a bundle installed in the framework which isn't really a bundle and you can't do anything
with it but uninstalling (which has no effect).

If you use for example the url handler for the features, which allows you to install a features
descriptor using osgi:install, it actually install a bundle, but there is a lifecycle tied
to this bundle: if you uninstall the bundle, the feature will be uninstalled.

So why would you use the kar: url handler for exactly? Do you think a specific command would
be more appropriate?

> We should be able to drop a .tar.gz or .zip assembly into the deploy directory, containing
a full assembly of features and bundles, and Karaf should thenextract it to system/ *and*
automatically detect feature repositories *and* add them to the feature repository list.
