Topic: BUGmodules / Question....Maybe dumb or answered somewhere already...

It’s only a joke to those of you who don’t have one of the prototypes. Let me tell you, the dark side of the moon is scary. If you go there be sure to bring a flashlight.

As soon as humanly (...or not human?) possible. I’ll post back when I get specifics.

Topic: BUG SDK / SDK Under Linux?

Not really. There’s a bug report at Red Hat. But it goes through the same thing as this thread. When it became clear that PDE wasn’t initializing correctly even though I removed and installed eclipse, that was easy for them to reproduce. They installed F8 and said it worked fine. At that point I realized it must be something else java related and applied a big hammer of removing everything java related and reinstalling.

Topic: BUG SDK / Servlet Form Parameters


Yes you are correct. Currently that aspect of our servlet container is not implemented. The code in question is in the com.buglabs.osgi.http bundle.

Topic: BUG SDK / Servlet Form Parameters

Has anyone attempted to pass in form attributes and parameters to the servlet after registering it to the HttpService? Maybe it is just me, but it does not even see any attributes, and if I even attempt to read the parameter list it throws an actual runtime exception.

Oh and the latest SDK build has a Virtual BUG with two LCD lines.
When are we getting that SDK Ken? :-)

Thanks for taking the time to research this. It’s great to have this stuff layed out early on so everyone’s on the same page.

Topic: Applications / Application Licensing

Hi everyone. So, I've done some homework and realized there are a couple issues here. First, what is Bug Labs' position on who owns BUG apps and second, what are the legal requirements around BUG app licensing? I've tried to answer both below.

First - Bug Labs is a firm believer in the power of FOSS - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FOSS. That's why everything we're doing is open source. That said we have no interest in enforcing any type of license on BUG application developers. They should be completely free to do what they want with their code. Of course, we'd love it if they GPL'd it, but it is by no means a requirement.

Second - With respect to linking and BUG apps, an analogy to Linux is appropriate. If you write an application for Linux in "user space" and only call the public Linux APIs to perform specific functions (printing, network, etc.), you are not required to license your app under the GPL. In the same way, if you write a BUG app and "call" services via the OSGi framework we provide (and you haven't included anyone else's code in your source) then you are free to license the app however you want. In fact, when you export your app from the SDK none of the OSGi framework code is included.

The whole linking debate is hotly contested and has not, to my knowledge, ever been settled by any case brought before a U.S. court. But given what I've been told, the BUG applications you create and are completely original to you, are yours to license how you please. Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. Thanks!

Topic: BUG SDK / SDK installation

Were you able to get everything up and running?

I haven't gotten it to run yet, but I haven't tried very hard yet. I will look in to it tonight more, thanks for asking!
