             Summary: Add support for symbol based serialization/RPC
                 Key: CELIX-437
             Project: Celix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: PubSubAdmin, Remote Service Admin
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Pepijn Noltes

Currently the remote service admin and pubsub are based on the use of dfi and 
descriptors. Another option could be to support the de/serialization and RPC 
using predefined function signatures. 

Using the extender pattern these function can be found and used without 
polluting the types/services with serialization/RPC code and make it possible 
to support a wide range of existing serialization/rpc techniques.

For example a service with the name "HelloWord" could have a bundle entry 
'META-INF/services/HelloWorld.rpc_info' entry containing a simple properties 
files with - atleast- the entires "create_proxy" and "create_endpoint". These 
refer to symbols in the shared libraries of the bundle with predefined 

More design details are needed before this can be implemented. Also a initial 
tech. should be chosen (e.g. RPC).
