Subject Re: Preparing for DOSGi RI 1.3 release
Date Tue, 27 Dec 2011 22:53:07 GMT
I'm thinking that 
org.osgi/org.osgi.enterprise/org.osgi.enterprise-4.2.0.jar needs to be 
included in the single bundle distro (this is a replacement for the 
dosgi ri local copy of the remote admin packages).

As a side note may be we should add a dosgi feature into our CXF Karaf 
profile, as my tests with the Talend distro have shown that DOSGi RI 
CXF-DSW loads fine and supports the deployment of JAXWS & JAXRS 
endpoints. This feature will point to 4 artifacts (OSGI compendium & 
enterprise, cxf-dsw & cxf topology manager) - I will start a new thread 
after DOSGI 1.3 is done in January
