Subject Re: Osgi fying an existing JAR.

Hi Madhav,

it depends a lot about the API, the classloading manipulation etc.

Using a "simple" API, you can directly use wrap:mvn:... to turn the API 
as a bundle.

If the API is more complex, you can wrap it as a bundle like we do in 
ServiceMix Bundles (using maven-bundle-plugin and maven-shade-plugin).

FYI, AFAIR, in Karaf archetypes, you have an archetype which create a 
wrap bundle.
