ServiceMix 3 uses it's own service registry that's hooked into the
NMR, but you can add other types of registries with a little hacking.

ServiceMix 4 uses the OSGi registry.

Joe's solution above using ApacheDS is a good idea because IIRC
multiple instances can be federated. But at that point then you're
pretty much building something very similar to what ServiceMix offers
today. Also, ServiceMix embeds ActiveMQ so you already have the broker
available for messaging. I'm not saying one is better than the other,
just making observations.

perl -e 'print unpack("u30","D0G)U8V4\@4VYY9&5R\"F)R=6-E+G-N>61E<D\!G;6%I;\"YC;VT*"
