FYI: The JEFFREE OSGi impl is long dead...I think it is based on OSGi 
R2, but I am not certain. Oscar is essentially dormant at this point 
too, although I am contemplating another minor release; Oscar is based 
on OSGi R3. Development started on Oscar 2.0 which is based on OSGi R4 
(the new spec), but this work has now become part of the Apache Felix 
project. So, of these three OSGi impls, Felix is the way to go.

Equinox is an R4 compliant framework and KF is currently R3, but I have 
heard that they have a new version for R4 in the offing.
