So, will the DS stuff work according to
112.7 if there *is* a
Configuration Admin service installed?

Currently there are no plans to
contribute a Configuration Admin implementation to Equinox. The direction
Eclipse is taking is to use the Eclipse Preferences to store configuration
data. The Eclipse Preferences API is much simpler to use then
Configuration Admin. It is also easier to manage and more widely used.
OSGi Preferences Service can also be used to store configuration data (the
implementation in Equinox simply wrappers the Eclipse Preferences). Although,
it is important to note that the OSGi Preferences Service does not have any
notifications when a value has changed. The Eclipse Preferences, however,
does provide these notifications.

Using the Configuration Admin Service?
I’ve been waiting for the Configuration
Admin bundle from Equinox for a while now. I wish it were here.
What is the status of it?
In particular, I need the interaction between the
ConfiguraitonAdmin service and the DeclarativeServices service. So I hope
it is well integrated when it happens.
In the short run, you can actually use the Configuration
Admin service available from www.knopflerfish.org
I have tested it (shortly) inside the Equinox framework and
it seems to work ok. However, I have not done any exhaustive testing.

a better approach for non-system bundle configuration information.
this I guess I'm proposing that the Config Admin Service be integrated at a
fairly low level in Eclipse and then used for all plugins/bundles that need
configuration instead of System properties.
the Configuration Admin service is available I'm happy to do the work, but
before I get started I'm curious as to whether people think this approach is
