This is an interesting (see bellow).  Have not tried it and do not know quality of meta-data for these artifacts.

Hi,

If anyone interested in OSGi version of any of Maven Central artifacts
(jars) you can now get them by using the
http://grid.sonatype.org:9000/nexus/content/repositories/central/
repository.
The osgi bundles are created on demand, meaning that the jar will be
OSGi-fyed as soon as the first request for it. The generated OSGi
bundle will have the same Maven coordinates (group/artifact/version)
as the original non OSGI jar but it will have and "osgi" classifier.

You can use the bundle in a Maven build as for example:
<dependency>
 <groupId>commons-logging</groupId>
 <artifactId>commons-logging</artifactId>
 <version>1.1.1</version>
 <classifier>osgi</classifier>
</dependency>

If you want to directly download the bundle, the URL is similar to
original (non OSGi) version of jar with an additional "-osgi" added in
front of ".jar" extension as in the following example:

Original jar URL:
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/commons-logging/commons-logging/1.1.1/commons-logging-1.1.1.jar

OSGi bundle URL:
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/commons-logging/commons-logging/1.1.1/commons-logging-1.1.1-osgi.jar

If using Pax Maven URL (Pax runner, Karaf, ...) you can access the bundle as:
mvn:commons-logging/commons-logging/1.1.1/jar/osgi or
mvn:commons-logging/commons-logging/1.1.1//osgi

Of course that if the jar is already an OSGi bundle it will not be transformed.

All of this automatically transformed bundles and all existing bundles
accessed via the above mentioned repository are available also via OBR
at:

http://grid.sonatype.org:9000/nexus/content/shadows/central-obr/.meta/obr.xml

Soon I will als make this bundles available as an P2 repository.

Note that this is an "lab" project for now so things might change and
will have downtimes as I will upgrade them with latest builds of Nexus
plugins we develop for OSGi.

Feel free to send me your feedback about it so I can improve/fix it if
needed. Also same features could be enabled for other Maven
repositories out there.
