I'm glad it's asked as I keep thinking about it too. I've got a couple
of applications that I think would benefit from migrating to OSGi, but
wonder how/where to start. These applications are built using M2. It's
a build system, but let one's think in terms of modules - not very
related, but one could draw some similarities.

Would it be a good starting point to see how these apps work on OSGi
platform to treat m2 modules as OSGi bundles? After a very first shot,
one would feel what OSGi might bring and how to work with it. I'm
asking about it as perhaps it's been a migration like this and it was
a very bad decision and it simply failed.
