Thanks Richard...

... but this is what I'm doing isn't it? Here's my actual code to deploy:

final Resource bundleResource =
Resolver resolver = repoAdminSupplier.get().resolver();
if (resolver.resolve()) {
 // null to resolve all unresolved bundles
} else {
 // handling code...

FelixObrUtils.getLatestBundleResource looks inside the RepositoryAdmin and
returns the highest versioned Resource with the symbolic name
"com.elsten.bliss.bundle". This is resolved (which should bring in the new
dependencies) and then deployed.

This code is itself running inside com.elsten.bliss.bundle.

Thanks for the info about refreshing and the BundleContext. I always
guessed that approach was a bit suspect. What is the correct way of
retrieving the FrameworkWiring without the BundleContext?
