Interface ProvisioningService


public interface ProvisioningService

Service for managing the initial provisioning information.

Initial provisioning of an OSGi device is a multi step process that culminates with the installation and execution of the initial management agent. At each step of the process, information is collected for the next step. Multiple bundles may be involved and this service provides a means for these bundles to exchange information. It also provides a means for the initial Management Bundle to get its initial configuration information.

The provisioning information is collected in a Dictionary object, called the Provisioning Dictionary. Any bundle that can access the service can get a reference to this object and read and update provisioning information. The key of the dictionary is a String object and the value is a String or byte[] object. The single exception is the PROVISIONING_UPDATE_COUNT value which is an Integer. The provisioning prefix is reserved for keys defined by OSGi, other key names may be used for implementation dependent provisioning systems.

Any changes to the provisioning information will be reflected immediately in all the dictionary objects obtained from the Provisioning Service.

Because of the specific application of the Provisioning Service, there should be only one Provisioning Service registered. This restriction will not be enforced by the Framework. Gateway operators or manufactures should ensure that a Provisioning Service bundle is not installed on a device that already has a bundle providing the Provisioning Service.

The provisioning information has the potential to contain sensitive information. Also, the ability to modify provisioning information can have drastic consequences. Thus, only trusted bundles should be allowed to register and get the Provisioning Service. The ServicePermission is used to limit the bundles that can gain access to the Provisioning Service. There is no check of Permission objects to read or modify the provisioning information, so care must be taken not to leak the Provisioning Dictionary received from getInformation method.

Method Detail

getInformation

java.util.Dictionary getInformation()
Returns a reference to the Provisioning Dictionary. Any change operations (put and remove) to the dictionary will cause an UnsupportedOperationException to be thrown. Changes must be done using the setInformation and addInformation methods of this service.

Returns:
A reference to the Provisioning Dictionary.

setInformation

void setInformation(java.util.Dictionary info)
Replaces the Provisioning Information dictionary with the key/value pairs contained in info. Any key/value pairs not in info will be removed from the Provisioning Information dictionary. This method causes the PROVISIONING_UPDATE_COUNT to be incremented.

Parameters:
info - the new set of Provisioning Information key/value pairs. Any keys are values that are of an invalid type will be silently ignored.

addInformation

void addInformation(java.util.Dictionary info)
Adds the key/value pairs contained in info to the Provisioning Information dictionary. This method causes the PROVISIONING_UPDATE_COUNT to be incremented.

Parameters:
info - the set of Provisioning Information key/value pairs to add to the Provisioning Information dictionary. Any keys are values that are of an invalid type will be silently ignored.

addInformation

void addInformation(java.util.zip.ZipInputStream zis)
                    throws java.io.IOException
Processes the ZipInputStream and extracts information to add to the Provisioning Information dictionary, as well as, install/update and start bundles. This method causes the PROVISIONING_UPDATE_COUNT to be incremented.

Parameters:
zis - the ZipInputStream that will be used to add key/value pairs to the Provisioning Information dictionary and install and start bundles. If a ZipEntry does not have an Extra field that corresponds to one of the four defined MIME types (MIME_STRING, MIME_BYTE_ARRAY, MIME_BUNDLE, and MIME_BUNDLE_URL) in will be silently ignored.
Throws:
java.io.IOException - if an error occurs while processing the ZipInputStream. No additions will be made to the Provisioning Information dictionary and no bundles must be started or installed.
