Bringing OSGi into discussion again
last time I did some research on the internet about whether there are some Java based operating systems out there. Finally I got to this one which looks most interesting to me, but it seems not to be developed very actively (just look at the last post times of the forums). As I'm an extreme OSGi enthusiast I looked for OSGi support at first, but all I saw was some few year old post about licencing issues with R3. Nowadays there is R4, which is published under EPL, and as far as I know this licence should be compatible with LGPL, or isn't it? When it is, I would really like you to consider using OSGi for JNode, as it would provide a straight-forward and standardized way of handling and deploying plugins as Jnode currently does in an IMHO quite strange way, adapting some things from OSGi and leaving out others. I don't know much about how JNode works exactly and actually I'm not the first who wants to see OSGi in JNode, but I think it could push JNode alot and could bring a lot of additional clearity having all the components, except some core components in order to boot and run some OSGi framework, in bundles.
