we need a little more of a usecase than that. An OSGi bundle is a java
application, so the short answer is yes :-)

You can turn 3rd party libraries into OSGi bundles, some more easily
than others.

You can connect to a running java app via Sockets (from any other java
app, not just OSGi).

In eclipse/equinox you can launch a Jetty server and have a java app
communicate with your OSGi instance.

Thanks, Paul!

We have a big JavaSE application. It consist of many logical parts. We are decided to change architecture on OSGi, but it is very slow process. At now, we add new functionality. Is it possible to add new functionality to OSGi framework as bundles and have opportunity to work together old functionality and new (bundles).
Or is it wrong way?
