Advanced Customization - Part III: OSGi and JDBC Drivers
The SimpleTable demonstrates how to run an EclipseLink DBWS service in an OSGi environment. One aspect of that environment was simplified by the use of the Apache Derby database which has a JDBC driver that is also an OSGi bundle. Unfortunately, this is not normally the case - most JDBC drivers are not OSGi-friendly. This section describes some of the techniques one can use to manage this addition complexity.
