I have been doing some investigative work recently in the area of
integrating extensions with OSGi services. As a result of this, I have
developed a small framework for dynamically injecting services into
extension objects according to metadata defined via the extension
registry. As a very simple example, suppose we have an extension
object (e.g. a ViewPart) which has a method
setLogReader(LogReaderService). We can declare an "injected bean"
extension as follows:
And then the actual view extension as:
This results in all objects instantiated from the log view extension
being dynamically injected with the log reader service as it becomes
available (and un-injected when it goes away).
I would like to request a work area under the Equinox incubator as a
home for this code so that others can test it and experiment with this
and other approaches to the extensions/services integration problem.
I enjoyed your talk on this at EclipseCon and
would be interested in helping out, if needed.
