Everything has pros and cons.
If we move the glue projects into hawkular repo, yes a change in the bus will be easier to
On the contrary, a change on the component will need an additional update into the
So, synchronization is needed in one side of another.
For alerts, that we relied on the bus for the integration metrics and also internally for
plugins integration we worked fine with the components in alerts repo.
As a change in the bus is rare (like this, once WF10 is out, I don't think a change
here is going to be frequent), but on the contrary a change on these projects are pretty
So based on how we worked, for us, it would be better to maintain them on the component,
to have all component-related-logic together.
I agree that perhaps it might be parts shared that can be extracted and placed in a
commons location, but most of the logic should remamin in the component IMO.

Subject: Re: [Hawkular-dev] Where should integration components live?
I am primarily talking about bus integration which would include things like,
Once we move to WF 10, we will drop the bus subsystem in favor of the default
messaging subsystem. All that remains of the bus is a shared, common
library. It will no longer have (or need to have) any
relationship/dependency with the nest. I wonder if the bus integration
components should live in the main hawkular repo. If we have integration
tests involving these components that run in a hawkular server, then I think
from a development stand point, it makes things easier if they live in the
main hawkular repo.
