Depends what you are trying to do. (E.g. I can't answer for RCP, if that's
what you want.)

I don't know if this is any use to you, but you may like to look at a very
simple test which picks out the OSGi framework and uses just its modularity
features.

Look for BasicStartup.java in the org.eclipse.osgi.tests project in the
src/org/eclipse/osgi/tests/modularity directory under the layering branch.
Since this takes some finding (!), here's a URL to give you an idea of what
it does:

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/~checkout~/org.eclipse.equinox/phase2/org.eclipse.osgi.tests/src/org/eclipse/osgi/tests/modularity/Attic/BasicStartup.java?rev=1.1.2.8
&content-type=text/plain&hideattic=0&cvsroot=Technology_Project&only_with_tag=layering

This currently runs under Eclipse (on the Equinox layering branch), but I
don't think it would be very hard to make it run standalone. (If you get
that working, please post back!)
