Dear Virgo/OSGi community,|
I'm not trying to start a rant, but could very well turn out to be one.
I have one question:
Is this the beginning of the end of OSGi support in Spring ?
(taken from springsource site, springsource.org/springframework-ebr , I cannot include links yet)
SPRING FRAMEWORK 3.2 AND THE SPRINGSOURCE EBR
Beginning with version 3.2, Spring Framework JAR files such as spring-core, spring-context, and spring-webmvc no longer contain MANIFEST.MF files with OSGi metadata. Likewise, builds are not automatically promoted to the SpringSource EBR.
To ensure that OSGi users are able to upgrade to Spring Framework 3.2, SpringSource will create and publish bundles for Spring Framework 3.2 GA to the EBR in a separate process shortly following the GA release. At least one 3.2 milestone or release candidate will also be published such that the community can validate the OSGi metadata prior to going GA.
Note that any future releases in the Spring Framework 3.1.x line will continue to contain OSGi metadata and will be published immediately to the EBR as per usual.
Interested users may want to place a watch on SPR-8903 to be notified of further updates, e.g. when Spring Framework 3.2 bundles are published to the EBR.

I wish Spring would dedicate more time to OSGi and switch from providing a library to providing OSGi services.
That is my biggest problem with Spring.
I'm intrigued by what kind of services you'd like Spring (framework?) to provide. Are you able to write your own bundle to consume Spring xxx and publish the services you'd like or are you thinking more of a re-design of Spring xxx to suit OSGi?
