Re: [equinox-dev] simpleconfigurator on other frameworks?

Hi Scott,

A couple summers ago I tried running p2 on Felix, and I seem to remember that simpleconfigurator was running fine. For running the rest of p2 on Felix, it was in the realm of possible but required some work to clear out some dependencies and I did not have the bandwidth to do that. As for keeping your progress somewhere, it is definitely interesting. I think the wiki is a good place for this.

Hi John,

Thanks for the info.   Speaking only about simpleconfigurator for the moment, has anyone tested it out on Felix recently (e.g. as part of p2-on-Felix efforts)? 

Would there be any desire/community value in (e.g. me) doing that and reporting results somehow/somewhere?

Simpleconfigurator is I believe completely generic and could be used on other frameworks. It does have some optional Equinox dependencies. Simpleconfigurator.manipulator requires frameworkadmin. There was a time in the past when we had prototypes of frameworkadmin for Felix and Knopplerfish but those were abandoned. The purpose was always for the frameworkadmin API to remain generic, and then have separate implementations per framework. There are some related bugs with a small amount of historical info:

Although simpleconfigurator has no 'p2' in its namespace it is maintained by the p2 team.  So this may be a better question for p2-dev.  That being said I know that simple configurator has a goal to not depend on anything out side of the framework.  It is driven by the content of bundles.info.  The bundles.info file is managed by the rest of p2 (or anything else, simpleconfigurator does not care who manages that file as long as it uses the the expected syntax/format).  Others from p2 may be able to point you to some efforts from a while back to run p2 on other frameworks besides Equinox.

Hi Folks,

A couple of questions about simpleconfigurator (and simpleconfigurator
manipulator):

1) I see from a casual look at the dependencies that it only imports
org.osgi packages...does this mean that SC/SCM can run on other
frameworks (e.g. Felix)?
2) I assume that simple configurator depend upon FrameworkAdmin
service...is that right?  What other services does it depend upon?
3) Is there a web/wiki page that has docs WRT these questions and/or
others?   I found [1], but it's maybe a little dated (?)

thanksinadvance,

Scott
