RE: [equinox-dev] Axis in OSGi on Equinox

Sure. The new version of Muse (currently being contributed by IBM) implements an ‘IsolationLayer’ interface to abstract the SOAP provider from the Muse core. Currently there are two implementations that are going into the code line – one for Axis 1.X and one for Axis 2.X. The work I’m doing repackages the Muse core as a set of bundles, adds ‘bundle awareness’, and allows the actual implementation of the SOAP provider to be late-bound as an OSGi service. The Axis IsolationLayer implementations are packaged as bundles and connect to the core through the afore-mentioned service interface. http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Corona_Design_SOA has a diagram. At present, the SOAP provider interface is fairly limited (Muse/WSDM make light demands on the underlying SOAP container), basically providing implementation details (name, version) and access to the underlying engine. For the Corona implementation, I’ve added the capability to publish POJOs as a stop-gap on my way to integrating with Tuscany/SCA.

 

All of this work is intended to be donated to the Muse project, although I’ve tried to structure the code in such a way that I can add additional capabilities as we consume Muse’s OSGi implementation in Corona. Can you give me some idea of how you’d like to use Axis? It would help me fill in the SOAP provider details.

Melih, Just to be clear you can use a wide range of software in Eclipse projects but you have to be sure to go through the Eclipse Contribution process.  Even if some other Eclipse project is using a third party library like Axis, a project like yours (I seem to recall that you are working on an Eclipse project) would have to request permission to include Axis in your deliverables.   We are working on processes and mechanisms to make this all easier and more transparent but for now this is what you have to do.  Note that this is true as well if you want to use the Knopflerfish bundling of Axis.  That is, it is not a technological issue but rather a legal and process issue.

Joel, can you say more about what Muse is doing with bundlized versions of Axis?

Joel,

Thanks for the heads up. I had found the Knoplerfish example, but wasn't sure that I could use it. It's good to know that this has been
done, and I will search in the Corona project to see how it was accomplished, and hopefully be able to emulate it. Thanks for the
reply.

Melih ,

 

I've done this for the Corona project (Axis 1.3 – Axis 2 is still in the works), and will submit the code as part of the Apache Muse project as soon as Muse's administrative kinks are ironed out.

The folks at Knoplerfish (http://www.knopflerfish.org/) have an Axis plugin for OSGi as well (Axis 1.x, OSGi R3).  

 

Cheers,

Joel Hawkins

[equinox-dev] Axis in OSGi on Equinox

 

Group,

Has there been any push to install Axis as a servlet in OSGi? I read in the newsgroup mention of developed
plugins that might one day make their way down the pipeline into the OSGi layer, but I haven't found any
mention since. If this hasn't been done yet, where would be a good place to start investigating as this is something
I'd like to add? Thanks,
