Release 2.0.0 (2016-09-17)


  • Split the SOAP support from the REST support. So it is now possible to only install SOAP support or only REST support.
  • Support for bndtools based deployments. We now offer a repository pom with the bundle dependencies which is suitable to create a bndtools index from it. So it is very easy to use CXF-DOSGi in bndtools. There is also such a repository pom for the samples that contains everything needed to run the samples from bndtools. The first example that uses this is the soap example. It contains a soap.bndrun file that can be directly started and debugged from eclipse. This pom based repo might be a replacement for the current multi bundle distro as it is much smaller and more flexible.
  • Documentation is now embedded into the source repository using markdown and can be easily viewed at github.
  • Redesign of examples to make them easier to understand and try out
  • Cleanup of a lot of the older JIRA issues

There is one incompatible change in this release. Previously custom intents were defined by using a special spring dm file below osgi-inf in the bundle that exports a service. From DOSGi 1.4.0 on custom intents can be defined by exporting the intent (e.g. a feature) as an OSGi service with a special property "org.apache.cxf.dosgi.IntentName" for the name of the intent. See dosgi custom intents.
