Subject Re: Getting started with the framework and Javadocs

You should read the OSGi R4.2 specification of the OSGi JavaDoc if you 
are interested in learning about OSGi or various other tutorials, etc. 
available on the web. If you haven't already done so, you should also read:


As the above page explains, Felix implements the OSGi standard Framework 
interface, which is why you'll want to read the OSGi JavaDoc. I guess we 
could generate the OSGi JavaDoc and make it available on our site 
somewhere, but I'm pretty sure someone else has put it online already.
