Re: [equinox-dev] Http Whiteboard implementation over Tomcat 8

The bundle you need is:


I you are using PDE projects then you can just use this repository as normal.

IF you are using bndtools >=3.3 you can use this repository configuration:

-plugin.Eclipse.Neon: \
ÂÂÂ aQute.bnd.repository.p2.provider.P2Repository; \
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ nameÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ =ÂÂ "Eclipse 4.6 (Neon)"; \
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ urlÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ =ÂÂ "http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.6/R-4.6-201606061100/"

In order to use this bundle with your own servlet container you must create a bundle which will create an instance of


That instance must provide access to a ServletContext of the real servlet container, and from there the implementation will take over handling sub servlet context's for you.

Here's a real world implementation of this:


Furthermore, I really dislike how this is implemented, It's a pretty terrible API design. It would be great to make this service oriented. I'll certainly appreciate any contributions to make it better.

I am looking for an implementation of the Http Whiteboard OSGi standard (Chapter 140 EEG spec).Â
I also need to run it over Tomcat 8.
Finally it is preferable that the whiteboard runs in "native mode" rather than via a bridge servlet. I.e. have Tomcat instantiate an actual ServletContext for every web app root as it does with WAR/WABs.

Equinox supposedly has an Http whiteboard R6 implementation, but I am somewhat confused as to which bundles do I need to run to get it.
