When your Spring integration is ready,
can you point us at it? Or even contribute it here?
Also, do you think that there are any
things that could be changed in the framework implementation or OSGi spec
to make the integration easier? There was some discussion of liberal
buddy classloading use. While that certainly is not something that
I would encourage it is an example of an enabling technology that at least
allows people to investigate a space.

Re: [equinox-dev] server
side eclipse examples?
I've been working on Spring integration on and off
for a bit. While I
don't know that Spring can be used to manage an entire OSGi system,
with multiple bundles, at once, I was able to use it to wire up
bundles internally (a.k.a, one BeanFactory per bundle). I've also
integrated it with ServiceBinder, which is sort of the predecessor to
R4's Declarative Services. This allowed me to easily define OSGi
services as Spring beans. I posted about it on the Apache felix-dev
list a while back, and linked to some code that I had at the time
(I've got more updated code now, but it's not packaged for
Also, check out Service Binder at
http://gravity.sourceforge.net/servicebinder/, as well as Declarative
Services in the OSGi R4 spec, as these are relevant.
After working with integration for a while, I've started to find that
Spring and OSGi are just different enough to make little issues keep
popping up. One fundamental difference is that Spring seems to assume
that all of its resources are available at any time, where as in an
OSGi world this is most definitely not the case.
