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

Simon, John, 
             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.   

The 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.

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.

Subject: [equinox-dev] Using the Configuration Admin Service? 
 
Hi all, 
I've been doing some investigation in to how Eclipse and its various 
components get configured. 
>From what I've seen, this is done primarily through System properties and 
I'm looking at alternatives for a variety of reasons. (see bug 105851, but 
I can definitely add other concerns) 
OSGi gives us the Configuration Admin Service and I'm wondering if using 
it might be a better approach for non-system bundle configuration 
information. 
By 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. 
Once 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 reasonable.
