    OSGi configurable properties and ServiceMix Bundles

    Peter Chandler Master

      In Eclipse (Equinox):

      I can "Create a configuration to launch the OSGi framework" -> "Run Configuration" -> "VM arguments:" and set parameters like:

      -Dorg.osgi.service.http.port=6532  (what port the start the OSGi HTTP Service on)


      "OSGi configurable properties:

      org.osgi.service.http.port - specifies the port number to use for the http serving. The default value for this property is 80 (which requires root permission), as per the OSGi specification."


      Question: How do I externally set "standard OSGi configurable properties" in ServiceMix?

          You can set this in etc/config.properties.

            I set the follow in config.properties:


            1. OSGi Configurable and Service Compendium Properties


            1. org.osgi.service.*



            This set the BundleContext properties which is great.


            Side effects are:

            1, the follow bundlles will not start:

            OPS4J Pax Web - Web Container (0.4.1)

            OPS4J Pax Web Extender - Whiteboard (0.3.0)

            2. My HTTP service bundle starts but there is no TCP/IP process listening on org.osgi.service.http.port?


            Follow-up questions.

            1. How do I turn-off (not start) all other HTTP Services (bundles)?

            2. What are the minimum bundle I need to start? i.e., OSGi Framework and  Compendium Services.

            3. Do I need to start the HTTP implementation bundle (org.mortbay.jetty)? If so how?

            4. How do I debug inside OSGi HTTP Service? Is there a special log level I can set? Change a log4j.property file?
