You need to grasp concepts first,I recommend you to read some of
available books like
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=eclipse+rcp

Forum is for learning concepts. It's rather a friendly place to place a
question during your Eclipse studies.

But to answer you at at least something. OSGi services is absolutely
unrelated to IMenuService etc. OSGi is execution engine and environment
behind Eclipse. If you are interested in GUI development with RCP, you
don't need to be OSGi expert, however.

GUI items like menus, popups or toolbars are created using Eclipse
Commands Framework (in past there were also JFace actions that are
considered as deprecated in many recent Eclipse releases).

Hope that helps,
Libor
