    Manifest based module metadata processing

    Thomas Diesler Master

      Related to MODULES-20

       

      The current plan according to the above jira issue is to provide a number of DeploymentUnitProcessors in org.jboss.as.deployment.processor that would parse modules specific manifest headers and provide module wiring configuration through this mechanism. Have a look at ModuleDependencyProcessor for an initial implementation of this.

       

      I'd like to start a discussion on

       

      * The functional scope of this metadata

      * How it relates to the existing modules schema

      * Manifest header naming issues

      * How these headers related to existing standard OSGi headers

      * etc.

       

      A good starting point would be a documented set of supported headers and their associated sematics - this can be done in javadoc (preferred) or wiki. Starting from this we can then expand on the ideas and provide feedback

       

      cheers
