> Felix WebConsole contains much more features eg. viewing the logs, editing the configurations
(it's broken currently in our case) managing Karaf instances and so on. I started thinking
about announcing our work to these user communities who may be interested in extensions. With
them we can discuss scope of webconsole (and their extensions). I think we are close to stabilize
core APIs and start working on first version which should be released before end of this year.

Afaik, Geronimo has its own console.
Camel and ActiveMQ are not OSGi based so I doubt they could benefit
from this work.
For ServiceMix, we were also discussing allowing ServiceMix added
value to run on non OSGi based deployment such as tomcat, so that may
be a bit problematic too.
