Interface ApplicationLauncher

  • public interface ApplicationLauncher
    A launcher for RWT applications in the OSGi environment. An instance of this interface will be available at runtime as an OSGi service.

    Instead of using the ApplicationLauncher directly, an ApplicationConfiguration can be provided as a service. For every available application configuration, the RWT OSGi integration bundle will automatically start an application at an available HTTPService.

        static final java.lang.String PROPERTY_CONTEXT_NAME
        The name of a service property for an ApplicationConfiguration service to define a context name for the application. For example, when an ApplicationConfiguration is registered as a service with a property contextName set to example, its entrypoints will be available at http://host/example/entrypointName.

        For declarative services, add this element to the component declaration:

         <property name="contextName" type="String" value="example"/>
