Service publishing and activation schedule

Jim Ma Apprentice

A esb user posted the feature request in ESB jiras:
https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBESB-2285

I think the following things are useful for SOA repostory :

* Scheduled publising/unpublishing of wenbservices without need for restart
* Adjust opening hours for services(service activation)

Shall we consider creating meta data for ESB service publishing and activation schedule ?

    Very interesting idea. Below are quoted from the original place:

    Lockup support of servicecontracts both in design- and runtime

    Adminstarte service registry/repository containing servicecontract and
    other metadata of interest including user acess control and authorization(WS-policy based, XACML)


    This is definitely what SOA Repository is aiming to provide

    WS-Policy or correspondant support for implicit autentication and authorization of systems or services


    This is part of "runtime" supports that SOA Repository is going to provide: i.e., runtime policy enforcement etc.

    Scheduled publising/unpublishing of wenbservices without need for restart

    Adjust opening hours for services(service activation)

    Firstly, JBOSS ESB has to support starting/stoping services without redeployment. As far as I know, this feature is not in place yet. Secondly, to avoid overlap with JON, SOA Repository may need to do the service scheduling through JON. But of course, we need to discuss where to store service scheduling information (like when to start the service, how long to run the service etc). Shall we store this info as metadata in SOA Repository or in JON.
