[jira] [Created] (ARIES-1940) Failure during service export is not properly handled by RemoteServiceAdminCore

ASF subversion and git services (Jira)
Arnoud Glimmerveen created ARIES-1940:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Failure during service export is not properly handled by RemoteServiceAdminCore
                 Key: ARIES-1940
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARIES-1940
             Project: Aries
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Remote Service Admin
    Affects Versions: rsa-1.14.0
         Environment: Apache Aries 1.14.0
Apache Felix Framework 6.0.2
            Reporter: Arnoud Glimmerveen


When a DistributionProvider throws an Exception from the DistributionProvider.exportService() method, the RemoteServiceAdminCore detects this properly and keeps track of this failure by creating a ExportRegistration instance that references the thrown Exception.

The specification mandates that if a service export failed, the ExportRegistration should provide access to the thrown Exception (which the current implementation does) and that the ExportReference of the ExportRegistration should throw an IllegalStateException.

The current implementation of RemoteServiceAdminCore handles this in an inconsistent way:
* The ExportRegistration.getExportReference() returns null rather then throwing the IllegalStateException
* The use of ExportRegistration assumes that there always is an ExportReference instance. This assumption is wrong in cases that the export failed.

The latter triggers exceptions such as as the one below; typically triggered by an event unrelated to the export service failure:
