Removing extensions

Lucee 5,
I know someone else already asked this but how do you remove an extension
completely?
After uninstalling extensions it still loads all the jars in lucee-server
directory, tomcat temp directory
and in the felix cache, does tomcat still scan these jars causing more
memory consumption?
Also wanted to point out that what used to be a 75 mb install bloats up to
about 320 mb with felix cache
and tomcat temp…etc.
Lucee 5 with osgi is hardly feeling like it has a lower memory footprint
and improved performance
but that could be my lack of tomcat/java knowledge.

cfhttp cachedWithin does not seem to work yet and I assume the newest
Postgres jdbc still has issues,
other than that is there a Lucee 5 without extensions installed?

thanks,
Mark.

Tomcat should NEVER load the jars inside “/lucee-server/bundles”, to avoid
this we have moved the “lucee-server” directory out of the lib folder. So
if Tomcat is loading this jars you need to change the classpath defintion
to avoid this at any coast!
We even plan to make a warning in the admin overview page if this is
happening.

Lucee normally should remove all jars used by an extension and no other
extension is using when uninstalled, BUT if this jars are also loaded by
tomcat it is possible (specially under windows) that Lucee is not able to
remove this jars because they are blocked by tomcat.

Jars inside “/lucee-server/bundles” are loaded only on demand, so if the
core and no extension is using them, they are not loaded, you can see which
jars are loaded in the admin under info/bundles.

can you raise a ticket about cfhttp-cachedwithin, we will check.

we plan the possibility to customize a lucee bundle online, but like i said
in a proper installation uninstalling an extension should be no problem,
but we will run some tests. what OS are you using?

completely forget to answer the question about postgres.
We had problems with newer version of the postgres driver, because it
contains some OSGi functionality that is specific to Karaf OSGi and breaks
with Felix OSGi. so we decided to go back to an older version (8.3.0.jdbc4)
and no longer provide the newer versions.

We have testcases in place that runs with every commit that are testing
postgres:



So postgres is working, otherwise we never could do a build.

So the question is, what version do you have in place and what exactly
fails with postgres?Micha
