Admin Console: ConfigAdmin
I'm looking forward to see improvements to the dm Server Admin Console as posted in the latest team blog as a more useful management web client would help me as a developer to persuade my conservative server administrators to run and manage productive dm Server instances. At the moment I miss the function to alter/edit ConfigAdmin properties. Actually I have a demo installation with the Felix WebConsole added as subsystem that provides such a functionality, but a native dm Server solution would be more pleasant.
Persistent ConfigAdmin storage with dm Server 2
If you change properties dynamically using the config admin service, e.g. in conjunction with the metatype service, dm server does not save them persistently. However, with dm server 2 using the felix config admin, there is a solution by setting the osgi property felix.cm.dir to a directory of choice which is not cleared over a server restart. Add an entry -Ffelix.cm.dir=... in the file bin/dmk.bat and in the program arguments of a STS server launch configuration. Note that existing properties in the directory config/ will take precedence.
