Just a comment about OSGi.

I've used it in the past and stopped using it (after 18 months) because
I found that in the end it added more complexity (maintaining bundles
files,  when changing) and didn't than real value. I'm talking about the
chore of maintaining bundles files and a pernicious impact on my way of
coding: I was always thinking about which class could use which other
class according to OSGi wiring.

The kind of problems I saw happened with 35 different bundles on
different startlevels. As mina will be packaged as just one bundle you
won't have that king of problem but just as a warning I advise you not
to make any class refactoring that don't make sense, that you wouldn't
have made without OSGi.
