First, here are the notes for the ECF conference call this morning 
I've been making progress on the OSGi 4.2 remote services
implementation, and I wanted to give a short status update...along with
a notice for ECF developers consumers.
First, see  for status of the remote service implementation. Things
are going very well, I think...and I'm about 90% finished. There is one
more piece (DefaultProxyContainerFinder) of implementation to complete,
along with adding to existing providers and test code. I expect to be
complete this week.
Second, because of the change/addition to the ecf core bundle: i.e.
org.eclipse.ecf, for a short while , committers and/or developers using
ECF daily builds will have to either:
1) Load the org.eclipse.ecf project into your workspace from CVS (see
 for instructions on getting the source)
2) Get the ECF platform plugins (along with sdk), and add them to your
The reason this is necessary, is that there is some new API in the the
ecf core, that the remote services stuff now depends upon...and Eclipse
does not yet have these classes...and since most people get the ECF core
bundles via Eclipse, it's necessary to do either 1 or 2 above to avoid
class not found compile errors or runtime errors using the sdk. NOTE:
this is strictly temporary, until we get the new ECF core API into
Eclipse 3.6 integration build...and then everyone that uses Eclipse 3.6
integration/milestone builds will get the new core code.
Finally, everyone please have a good holiday later this week. Best
wishes to all the ECF community (and families).
