First Karaf Release as Top Level Apache Project
First Top Level release for OSGi based runtime, with a new placholder for overriding configuration Properties.
The Karaf team have announced their first release as a Top Level
Apache project: Karaf 2.0.0.
Apache Karaf is a OSGi based runtime which provides a container
onto which components and applications can be deployed. It supports
hot deployment of OSGi bundles by monitoring jar files inside the
[home]/deploy directory, and installing inside the runtime
everytime a jar is copied in this folder. The configuration of
services can also be denied using property files inside the
[home]/etc directory. A number of different APIs are supported by
this project, including JDK 1.4, JCL, and SLF4J.
This release introduces a placeholder for overriding the
configuration Properties and allows additional configuration files
through a custom property when loading the main configuration
