Subject [jira] Created: (MYFACES-2290) Add OSGi bundle information and bundle classloader / activator

Add OSGi bundle information and bundle classloader / activator

                 Key: MYFACES-2290

with ClassUtils methods.

To run MyFaces in an OSGi environment both bundles (myfaces-api and myfaces-impl) have to
be started in the OSGi container. Additionally, the myfaces-impl bundle has to be made available
to myfaces-api. Use a fragment bundle with myfaces-api as Fragment-Host and myfaces-impl as
