Oops... my earlier response was for R3.  For R4, I had to set the
following in config.properties:

#
# JNDI properties.
#
java.naming.provider.url=localhost:1099
java.naming.factory.initial=org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory
java.naming.factory.url.pkgs=org.jboss.naming

I'm not sure that this is entirely true.  I created an RMI service
bundle similar to what Richard suggested and it was not required to be
declared in the classpath.  What was just needed was to set the
jndi.properties directory in the classpath so that the properties can
easily be modified.  Other than that, it was just like any *normal*
bundle.

Using a service may not always work.
For example the RMI JMX connector will access the JNDI
registry and will need the bundle in its classpath and this can
requirement can not be removed afaik (the code is in jmx).

What about extension bundles ? I've seen that in the spec.
Could they help me somehow ?
