Subject Re: Configuring ActiveMQ in OSGi containers
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2008 12:58:46 GMT
Hi Christopher,

the servicemix.activemq bundle does exactly what you are describing. It
just instantiates ActiveMQ using the external configuration file.
You can start exploring that code and create your own bundle that will
better fit your application.
