New look to Apache Axis2 with OSGi

Apache Axis2 has span its spectrum with the incorporation of OSGi integration. This will be mainstream in next Axis2 main release. In summary, there exist an OSGi bundle, org.apache.axis2.osgi_.jar, which can be deployed in any OSGi environment. This bundle has few wire dependencies to other bundles, which can either be available in the OSGi implementation or one can simply create them using most popular bundling tools.

In order to better understand how this will work in Eclipse Equinox OSGi implementation, I have create a scratch project, which will be available here. Just do an svn checkout on prior url. Do follow the axis2_osgi_integration.pdf for more comprehensive detail of this effort.
