At first thanks to have posting message in my blog
As you have read, I would like support Remoting on our Eclipse RCP/RAP
with Spring DM and I have studied CXF DOSGi with REST and it works well.
An important thing is that our Eclipse RCP must support Fat
Client/Client Serveur (Remoting).
[Scott] I'm not sure what you mean by this. Of course ECF allows
'peer-to-peer' remoting (i.e. remote service hosts can also be remote
service hosts...if that's what you meant.
So I want just
* add remoting exporter bundle on server side (ex:with CXF DOSGi, I
retrieve the services implementation and I expose the service with
REST just with Spring configuration (none code)).
[Scott] This should be completely possible...as long as Spring follows
the OSGi standards here for registering OSGi services (and I cannot
imagine that they don't).
* add remoting importer bundle on client side. (ex: with CXF DOSGi, I
retrieve the services with REST client and I register the service in
the OSGi registry just with Spring configuration (none code)).
[Scott] Same here.
I have seen that ECF supports REST and you suggested me to use it. I'm
OK, but do you think it's possible with ECF to manage my case?
[Scott] ECF does have a rest API...and we also now have a Restlet-based
provider (it's not jax-based annotation, but it is annotation-based).
With REST, I want add JAX-RS annotation in my interface services and
do nothing with code (don't want code REST client/server service).
[Scott] If you want to add a JAX-RS-based provider, you could certainly
do so. We have not created one yet, but as the restlet provider shows,
with ECF's provider architecture and with remote service admin (RSA),
it's a straightforward dev activity.
