On IBM WebSphere Application Server (since V8, V7 with OSGi FEP), you do not have to install your RAP application using the bridge.war file. WAS provides an OSGi platform to Java EE applications to use OSGi's resolver mechanism and service dynamic. This platform is based on the Equinox OSGi implementation, but does not support Equinox-specific functionality like Extension Points.

To deploy RWT on RAP, you have to do the following steps:

1. Create an EBA file with the
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file.

It is helpful to use IBM Rational Application Developer V8 with OSGi tools installed or to install [http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/downloads/10/rationaldevtoolsforosgiapplications.html IBM OSGi tools] into Eclipse and to create EBA/WAB/OSGi bundle projects.
