@ConsumerType public interface EndpointEventListener
ENDPOINT_LISTENER_SCOPE. This service property is a list of filters. An Endpoint Description should only be given to a Endpoint Event Listener when there is at least one filter that matches the Endpoint Description properties. This filter model is quite flexible. For example, a discovery bundle is only interested in locally originating Endpoint Descriptions. The following filter ensures that it only sees local endpoints.
(org.osgi.framework.uuid=72dc5fd9-5f8f-4f8f-9821-9ebb433a5b72)In the same vein, a manager that is only interested in remote Endpoint Descriptions can use a filter like:
(!(org.osgi.framework.uuid=72dc5fd9-5f8f-4f8f-9821-9ebb433a5b72))Where in both cases, the given UUID is the UUID of the local framework that can be found in the Framework properties. The Endpoint Event Listener's scope maps very well to the service hooks. A manager can just register all filters found from the Listener Hook as its scope. This will automatically provide it with all known endpoints that match the given scope, without having to inspect the filter string. In general, when an Endpoint Description is discovered, it should be dispatched to all registered Endpoint Event Listener services. If a new Endpoint Event Listener is registered, it should be informed about all currently known Endpoints that match its scope. If a getter of the Endpoint Listener service is unregistered, then all its registered Endpoint Description objects must be removed. The Endpoint Event Listener models a best effort approach. Participating bundles should do their utmost to keep the listeners up to date, but implementers should realize that many endpoints come through unreliable discovery processes. The Endpoint Event Listener supersedes the
EndpointListenerinterface as it also supports notifications around modifications of endpoints.
