We always test our OSGi applications both under OSCAR and Knopflerfish and 
since you posted so extensively on the Eclipse OSGi runtime, I decided to try 
that too (I did so when 3.0 was under development but could not find any good 
documentation back then). Unfortunately, I am having a difficult time finding 
documentation again. I've looked at the link you provided, I've tried 
searching the whole Eclipse site, I've tried searching the Eclipse 3.1 help 
files, but I cannot find any API documentation on the EclipseStarter class 
which I need to launch the framework. I want to configure it to start some 
bundles from code.

Please take this as constructive criticism, because I do like to add a third 
framework to our testing environment, it's just that I'm having a hard time 
setting it up.

Greetings, Marcel
