EIG:Install into Apache Karaf


ECFs Remote Services/Remote Service Admin implementation may be used on any OSGi R4.3+ compatible Framework Implementation. Starting with ECF 3.8.0 we will provide the Apache Karaf provisioning metadata to allow ECF RS/RSA SDK to be easily installed into a Karaf installation.

What is Karaf?

Karaf is a lightweight OSGi container that supports installing Karaf-based features into the runtime. For more information about Karaf, and/or to download see here, and for more information about Karaf provisioning see here.

Installing ECF Remote Services SDK into Karaf

Karafinst1.png The available ECF 3.8.0 Karaf features will then be shown in the panel below (e.g. ecf.rs.sdk) Karafinst2.png

  • Install the ECF SDK
    • In the webconsole. click on the arrow for the ecf.rs.sdk feature/row underneath the Actions column. Once the install has started, this will take some time (minutes), and install progress can be monitored via the LogService.
    • If you would rather install from the Karaf command console, enter this command: feature:install -v ecf.rs.sdk
    • Once all bundles have been installed and started, the Karaf webconsole bundles list should appear
