Re: [ecf-dev] Consume service that has been marked as 'remote' , locally

Hi Pradeep and Wim,

One thing to add to what Wim says:

According to the Remote Services specification, all remote service proxies will have the  'service.imported' service property set to some non-null value.

So in your filter, to find all proxies/remote services, you can look for the 'service.imported' property being set.

In ECF's case, the value of 'service.imported' is set to be an instance of IRemoteService [1].

Hi Pradeep,

This is really something for DS. See chapter 112 of this: http://www.osgi.org/download/r4v42/r4.cmpn.pdf

In short, It depends on how you consume the service.

If you use a service tracker or a service listener you can specify a filter or query the service properties when a service comes in.
If you ask the service registry you can specify the properties you want or don't want.
If you use the referenced service in the component.xml then you can specify the filter in the "target" field. (see 112.3.4 of the forementioned manual)

Best regards,

Hi all,

I did a small test related to above query. When i run the client
within the same JVM process, that exports the interface as remote
services, I got this object reference through ds,


while remote service client (another JVM process) giving this as the output,


So it is safer assume that, zeroconf does not affects my default
behaviour. So that solves my first question I guess. :)

but I cant figure the answer for my second question, how to address
the exact service through DS when you have both remote and local
services registered under same interface (Name).
