I know some people have experimented with Oscar/Felix inside of a 
servlet container, but I am not really sure if there is a best approach 
to this or not...to some degree it seems that it would be dependent on 
the servlet container implementation.

But starting up Felix is basically just creating an instance with the 
appropriate properties for your situation. I have started a document 
about launching and embedding Felix:


It is not done yet, since I got pulled away on other things, but it 
might be of some help as it is.
