[virgo-dev] Virgo and ECF remote services

Hi Virgoers,

I work on the ECF project [1]. We have an implementation of OSGi 4.2 remote services [2], and we're now finishing up an implementation of the OSGi 4.2 remote services admin spec [3] for release in late Feb 2011.

Recently, we've had several folks in our consumer community (e.g. [4]) that have asked about using ECF remote services along with Virgo. As far as I/we can tell, this should be eminently doable, as Neil Bartlett has successfully run ECF remote services (along with dependencies) on Felix [5].

However, some reports from users (e.g. [4]) have been that the Virgo runtime does not resolve the org.eclipse.equinox.common bundle. We have some dependencies on classes that are exposed by equinox.common (as well as some other equinox APIs...like jobs API...and concurrent API...and extension registry), but these can/should/do run just fine inside of other OSGi frameworks.

Is there some 'trick' to running equinox.common and some other equinox pieces in Virgo that we can notify our/your users about? It would be quite nice for both our user communities if the ECF remote services and remote services admin were to run easily inside of Virgo...and it seems to me this should be doable. But perhaps I'm missing something.

Thanksinadvance for any information.

Scott
