Hi Sergey,

today I read your mails again with a fresh mind, trying to make it work ;-) First, regarding
the mail below, I saw that according to [1] the property "" is of
Boolean type while you suggest to use it as a list of classnames. If I use it as a list of
classnames whatsoever I get a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.provider.JSONProvider,
the same for The same happens when I try to instantiate
JSONProvider and register it as a service with the OSGI service registry via a DS Component
with the following XML:

<scr:component enabled="true" immediate="true" name="VzServiceRestJSONProviderComponent"
    <implementation class="org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.provider.JSONProvider"/>
    <property name="" value="VzServiceRestJSONProvider"/>
    <service servicefactory="false">
        <provide interface=""/>
        <provide interface=""/>

These are the bundles I installed (Pax Runner start script):

 ... (some more bundles of my app)

Inspecting the cxf-dosgi-ri-singlebundle-distribution bundle and browsing the jar I can see
that the class is included and the package is exported, therefore I can't explain to myself
why this doesn't work :-(

Do you have any clue why the Providers can't be found?

which worked fine. However, I couldn't find any information about how to get the JSON responses
working (they are always empty, i.e. 0 bytes of payload). Can somebody help me here and point
me to the right documentation?
