Well no, I wouldn't say it defeats the purpose. The demo is described
in a very detailed walkthrough on the wiki[1] with links into SVN for
browsing the code. I think this is sufficient for understanding and
learning etc.

Note the dOSGi samples are a bit different from the core CXF demos in
that the emphasis is on the simplicity of enabling pre-existing OSGi
code for distribution. So the actual application code is really of
secondary importance. The crucial thing is the few knobs that need to
be set in order to transparently expose or consume an OSGi service as
a remote web service.

Cheers,
Eoghan
