> That definitely sounds interesting. The "OBR" that is included in ACE consists of a couple
of bundles. By default we include these as part of the ACE server. They can also be deployed
in a stand-alone OSGi framework. Option number three is not using them at all but instead
hooking up to an external repository that exposes the same OBR metadata.

maven repository?

Actually, the Felix maven bundle plugin also has such code which is
reusing Felix bundlerepository library to create the fragments of XML
based on a given manifest object.
