DOTS and automatic startup of bundles

Domino OSGi Tasklet Container (or DOTS for short) is an uber-cool OpenNTF project that allows you to write addins for the Domino server in Java. The project used to be called JAVADDIN which kind of gives the purpose away.

At UKLUG I was asked if there was a way to specify which bundles to automatically start at server startup. I didn't know the answer so I wrote an e-mail to David Taieb who's the author of the project and he quickly responded that this is indeed possible. Below is Davids answer:

Yes, you can create a file called config.ini in 
{data}/domino/workspace directory and add the following line 
domino.osgi.bundles.start=pluginid1,pluginId2,pluginId3 

Restart http task and verify that the plugins specified are 
active 
>tell http osgi diag pluginId1 
>tell http osgi diag pluginId2 
>tell http osgi diag pluginId3

Best Regards

The above is for Domino 8.5.3 - for Domino 8.5.2 the config.ini file is in the workspace\.config directory.

There is a caveat though. The automatic startup isn't performed until an XPage request is made. An extension point to make bundles automatically startup when the server is started will be added for Domino 8.5.4.
