Subject [jira] Commented: (KARAF-209) Allow the info command to display custom information such as Apache ServiceMix version number
Date Sun, 19 Sep 2010 14:30:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-209?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12912230#action_12912230

Claus Ibsen commented on KARAF-209:

I was thinking that the info stuff could be customized from a etc config file or something,
because the info command is generic.
This makes it easy for 3rd party who customize and repackage karaf.

Its very usable for support situations where you want to get basic information about the _server_.
And asking them to run {{info}} in the shell is easy.
And then email the output from the console.

The idea of having bundles being able to influence the info command is neat, but I think that
should be worked into the OSGi spec somehow so its more general.
Maybe the bundle could allow/or already have some ways to supply details in the MANIFEST.MF
The reason for that is to avoid bundles having any dependencies to Karaf at all.

>             Project: Karaf

>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Claus Ibsen
>            Priority: Minor
> The info command lists nice basic information about the OS, JVM, Karaf etc. All important
information for support etc.
> But when using Apache ServiceMix it does not display information about ServiceMix, which
would be nice to display SMX version number etc.
> And for companies distributing ServiceMix under their own label, it would be nice for
them to add custom information / version as well.
> Maybe allow it to load some fixed information from a etc or properties file so custom/fixed
information can be displayed. Kinda like a header to the info command.
