Re: [equinox-dev] Roadmap?

IBM is in the process of preparing a contribution of a Declarative 
Services implementation (among other selected services). Stay tuned...

I would have to say Declarative Service is the best to use. But in the 
interest of full disclosure, I was the designer of Declarative Services 
:-) I am also not very familiar with GBeans. But DS does fully integrate 
with the OSGi service model and has certain desirable performance 
characteristics such as delayed activation.

[equinox-dev] Roadmap?

Is there a roadmap for Equinox, especially where it concerns the 
compendium services of r4?  In particular, I am interested in using the 
Declarative Services Specification?
I have been looking around to see if I could find information about it 
(dss), but haven?t found anything other than a handful of mail in the 
archive.  In particular, I need to have a good idea when (if) dss is going 
to be implemented.  I?ve even considered just implementing that part of 
the specification myself in order to get it quicker.
Both DSS and GBeans are IoC frameworks.  Does anyone have any opinions on 
which are easier to use? Better?  Any pros/cons?
