Grizzly OSGi Archetype

This is take 2 of Grizzly on OSGi platform (take 1).

Previous problems running this configuration has been solved by Grizzly Devs, awesome feedback.

So if you want a Quick Start for Grizzly on OSGi jump to your console and execute following:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=
This should allow you to choose grizzly-osgi-startup project and provide all necessary project details.
Next thing you do is to cd to newly created project and execute:
mvn clean install pax:provision
Now you should have Felix (default for Pax, you can choose other platform providers) running your bundle that uses Grizzly and is listening on localhost:8282.

Have fun Grizzling in OSGi.

Grizzly Dependency Overview

You probably could see it comming :)

Grizzly OSGi

As a side effect of working on Grizzly Proxy simple project showing how to use Grizzly in OSGi environment popped up.

Hope to have archetype available soon, will keep you posted.

Grizzly proxy

After Devoxx I finnaly started working on Grizzly Proxy Server.
Project page and sources tree are available.

For now proxy is not functional.
Initialy I used commons-httpclient to make connections to target server.
This turned out to be not really nice since httpclient is blocking.

My current focus is to change it to use HttpCore and especially I'm interested in NIO Extensions Module.
This will allow much better scaling, but still will relly on two difrent APIs, and I'm dont think I like having it done like that.

Once Grizzly team releases thair HTTP Client I'm going to switch to it.
So don't expect g-http-proxy to be usable right now, but keep an eye on it, and fill free to contribute.

g-http-proxy is OSGi bundle :)

Thanks for listening and stay tuned.
