Hi Dejan,

Thank you for your detailed reply.

My feeling at this point is that the recommendation you forwarded is a
little service mix centric. While I will probably be using the service mix
kernel ultimately, I do not want to be tied to it.

I am new to OSGi but I thought that it had a configuration manager and that
that was supposed to help externalise configuration from the bundle. That is
certainly what I am looking for.

Another option is to effectively instantiate ActiveMQ from within a bundle
of my own and configure it programatically. I'm shying away from this though
because it means that I would then have to create a bundle for every
configuration of every type of service in my OSGi world. That seems
cumbersome at this point and does not recognise an administration role as
distinct from a development role. I cannot see that administrators would
want to go in and build bundles each time they wish to change a

I'm probably rambling now, but what I'm looking for is some means within
OSGi containers to configure bundles outside the bundle itself in an OSGi
compliant manner. Spring server dm seems to have got something going with
regards to tomcat in this manner i.e. tomcat's conf folder is externalised.
However I am not clear on how this is done or whether it is OSGi

Further thoughts?

Kind regards,
