OSGi has to run on various devices, that's why you see OSGi running on web servers, embedded devices, desktops, ski lifts, military devices, BMW 5 series, etc...

I personally attribute a lot of OSGi's success to this methodology. Try to keep the lowest denominator so you can get maximum usage.

There's more to Java than just the desktop, remember that :)

However in this case, I could imagine the core doc-sharing code be reused , but the UI pieces be specialized.
