That works. If you want a bit more flexibility, you can write a shell command, by making an
Activator that does something like this:

public class Activator extends DependencyActivatorBase {
    public void init(BundleContext context, DependencyManager manager) throws Exception {
      Properties props = new Properties();
      props.put(CommandProcessor.COMMAND_SCOPE, "myscope");
      props.put(CommandProcessor.COMMAND_FUNCTION, new String[] { "test", "two" });
            .setInterface(Object.class.getName(), props)

    public void destroy(BundleContext context, DependencyManager manager) throws Exception

and a Commands class with commands that do something like this:

public class Commands {
    public void test() {
    	System.out.println("test command executing");
    public void two() throws Exception {
    	throw new RuntimeException("I throw an exception.");

Of course your commands should do something useful, and you might want to inject certain service
dependencies into that class, but this is the idea. From the shell you can then simply type:
"test" (or "myscope:test" if there exists more than one "test" command in different scopes).
