I have an existing RestEasy based web application that works fine. I want to use EMF and some other frameworks in this application, but not all frameworks that use EMF are available as standalone.

So I need to use OSGI runtime in a web application. The sequence of events is as follows:

client request -> || web container || -> RestEasy bound class -> calls some OSGI bundles based functionality, creates response, then sends it back.
