Subject Re: ApacheDS OSGi configuration
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 15:49:08 GMT
jetty has been shipping osgi marked up artifacts for quite some
time...and now that we are at eclipse we are working on increasing our
support for osgi things...

the latest version of the felix bundle-maven-plugin (2.0.0) has been a
good version bump for us, just fyi :)
