You didn't say how they failed.  Is the package not exported by the system
bundle anymore?
The versions exported by Felix changes based on the JRE used and you may
have to adjust your bundle imports.

I would check 1 first and if in fact some of the packages are missing, then
either use the extra system packages or create a fragment
bundle to export the necessary packages.  Using a fragment bundle means all
you need to do to switch from java 6 to 7 is the installation of the extra
fragment bundle.
