Derek Baum commented on FELIX-5349:
Yes, I'm using the same PID. This also means that the existing Metadata is
available in webconsole when creating a new instance.
Enforcing the name property would be useful, otherwise it's difficult to target
a specific whiteboard instance without using the port in the filter.
If you only want to use the ManagedServiceFactory, then setting
org.apache.felix.http.enable=false, stops the ManagedService instance from
starting; although it can be re-enabled from webconsole/config admin.
I did consider adding a property that would eenable either the existing
ManagedService ot the new ManagedServiceFactory, but I don't think that's
The ManagedServiceFactory could also check for conflicting configurations, for
example a port that conflicts with an existing instance.
> add ManagedServiceFactory to HTTP service
> Key: FELIX-5349
> URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5349
> Project: Felix
> Issue Type: New Feature
> Components: HTTP Service
> Affects Versions: http.base-3.0.12, http.jetty-3.2.4
> Reporter: Derek Baum
> Assignee: Carsten Ziegeler
> Priority: Minor
> Fix For: http.base-3.0.14, http.jetty-3.2.6
> Attachments: factory.patch
> I need to run multiple HTTP services, with different configurations.
> I was surprised to find that felix.http.jetty does not provide a
> ManagedServiceFactory and so were others as indicated in this stack overflow
> I have experimented with creating a ManagedServiceFactory for the HTTP
> service myself. It is difficult to do externally to the http.jetty bundle, as
> it requires access to internal packages.
> I have therefore created a small patch to revision 1760954 which adds a
> ManagedServiceFactory, without changing any of the existing functionality of
> the ManagedService. This allows multiple http.jetty instances to be
> configured using WebConsole, fileinstall or other config admin clients.
> I have also added a new configuration property: org.apache.felix.http.name,
> which is added as a service property to the HTTP runtime instance. This makes
> it easier to target a specific HTTP whiteboard service than filtering on the
> HTTP_WHITEBOARD_TARGET + "=(org.apache.felix.http.name=web1)"
> I would be grateful if you would consider adding this functionality.
