But it isn't. When running in plain old Java, the DefaultWhiteboard
only contains a small subset of services that need the dynamic
registration/lookup functionality of the whiteboard pattern. Normal
components whose wiring can be achieved with direct object references
are not kept in the Whiteboard, and can't be looked up through it.

This is by design. We don't want to reinvent OSGi.
