Re: [equinox-dev] Working with ConfigAdmin service


Your problem lies in the use of the ConfigurationAdmin's getConfiguration(String pid) API.  This method returns a Configuration for the bundle you're in.  You should be using ConfigurationAdmin's getConfiguration(String pid, String location) method instead. The second parameter is the location of the target bundle, but I suggest that you create an anonymous Configuration by passing null as the second parameter. An anonymous Configuration gets automatically bound to the bundle that owns the PID when it is registered.

Other comments:

 - The ManagedService's updated(Dictionary) method might get passed null, so you must account for that.  Check the Javadoc.

- If you're using the Equinox 3.5 your component class' activate method should NOT require a ComponentContext. If you're not using, don't specify it in the declaration of the method. Since you have bind/unbind methods for the ConfigurationAdmin service I would guess that you don't need it.

I hope this helps,

Simon

Hi Simon.

Thanks for you detailed help, very much appreciated. I managed to get around that and now I am running into a different problem when I am trying to update teh configuration in my managed service. I see the following in my log:

Warn [4] Configuration for service.pid=test.bundle could not be bound to
file:LogTest2_1.0.0.jar initial@reference:file:org.eclipse.equinox.cm_1.0.100.v20090520-1800.jar/

What are the possible causes of this and where should I start looking for the issue? I have a simple Managed Service, LogTest2 bundle:

------- Activator of LogTest2 Bundle ------------------------
(snippet)

public void start(BundleContext context) throws Exception {
      ......
       Properties properties = new Properties();
       properties.put(Constants.SERVICE_PID, "test.bundle");
       registration = context.registerService(ManagedService.class.getName(), this, properties);
      .......
}

public void updated(Dictionary properties) throws ConfigurationException {
       System.out.println("Configuration is being updated...");
       Integer newLogLevel = (Integer) properties.get("log-level");
       String newLogLocation = (String) properties.get("log-location");
      ........
}
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And I have a bundle (called LogConfigurator) to update configuration for LogTest2 bundle:

-------my main Component for LogConfigurator -------------

   public void setConfigAdmin(ConfigurationAdmin admin) {
       this.admin = admin;
   }
   
   public void unsetConfigAdmin(ConfigurationAdmin admin) {
       this.admin = null;
   }
   
   public void activate(ComponentContext context) {
       try {
           config = admin.getConfiguration("test.bundle");
           if (null != config) {
               Dictionary properties = config.getProperties();
               // this prints out the location for LogConfigurator instead of LogTest2!
               // which I guess it means it hasn't found the LogTest2 bundle
               System.out.println(config.getBundleLocation());
               if (null == properties) {
                   properties = new Properties();
               }
               properties.put("log-level", 3);
               config.update(properties);
               System.out.println("Updated configuration to log level 3");
           }
       } catch (IOException e) {
           // TODO Auto-generated catch block
           e.printStackTrace();
       }
       
   }

--------------------------------------------------------------

The order in which I do these is that first I install and activate Logtest2 and then I install and enable LogConfigurator. The println at the top of the "updated()" method is never called when LogConfigurator is installed, which is consistent with the wrong bundle location that I get in LogConfigurator.

Thanks,
Ali.

P.S. the warning message that I mentioned earlier is when I reverse the order of installations.

Ali,


I think the problem you're having is one of ordering.  If your bundle starts before the ConfigurationAdmin service is registered then you're not going to find it. This is not a problem and is part of how OSGi works. There are a number of solutions:


1. Use Declarative Services (DS). This is by far the easiest approach since it removes the ordering problem entirely. I strongly recommend that you use DS.


2. Use the ServiceTracker to track the ConfigurationAdmin service.  This works in theory, but in practice is way harder to get right than you might imagine.


3. Register a ServiceListener to track the ConfigurationAdmin service. This also works in theory, but in practice is more work that you'd care to do.  It's debatable whether this is easier or harder than using the ServiceTracker.


See the attached zip that shows how to use DS to acquire a ConfigurationAdmin service.




I hope this helps,


Simon

Hello everyone.

I am trying to write a few simple examples with ConfigurationAdmin
service to familiarize myself with it but have a difficulty obtaining a
pointer to the service. I am running Equinox 3.5 and have deployed
org.eclipse.equinox.cm_1.0.100 bundle in my framework but still when I
try to get a reference to the ConfiguartionAdmin (via
context.getServiceReference(ConfigurationAdmin.class.getName()) ), I get
a null pointer. Do I need to set any particular security settings?

Many thanks,
Ali.
