Subject [jira] [Created] (QPID-7563) Implement Virtualhost centric REST interface
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2016 20:43:58 GMT
Keith Wall created QPID-7563:

             Summary: Implement Virtualhost centric REST interface
                 Key: QPID-7563
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-7563
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Java Broker
    Affects Versions: qpid-java-6.2
            Reporter: Keith Wall

For use-cases where the Broker to hosts a shared service where different applications are
assigned to be different virtual hosts the broker should offer the ability to manage these
virtualhosts independently.  It should behave as if it were a chrooted prison.

AMQP Management already offers this ability.  The HTTP management interface should change
to offer the same thing.

The REST API of a virtualhost will service the only virtualhost's subtree.  The formation
of the service urls will reflect this structure.  {{/virtualhost}} will be analogous to {{//broker}}
and will service the virtualhost root.  {{/queue/}} will serve all the queues defined on the
virtualhost, {{/queue/<queuename>}} will serve only the names queue.

To offer the virtualhost service, the HTTPPort will be changed to support VirtualHostAliases.
 As with an AMQPPort, with a HostNameAlias, a HTTP port will be capable of presenting an interface
for any virtualhost whose name matches the hostname of the incoming request.  A new alias
type will support a one to one mapping between port and virtualhost interface.

The scope of the work will be the REST API only.   Authentication will be performed by the
preemptive authenticator - SASL won't be support yet.  Nor will offer services such as query,
reports, metadata etc.
