This is a main concern of mine as well. I've brought it up a couple
times at the felix mailing list.
I think there are some ideas floating around about building more of an
integration testing framework that can help test your service within the
confines of OSGi.
Richard Hall had given me a few pointers on similar work over at
Knoplerfish. He also had some good ideas in the same general direction.
Perhaps others can chime in as well so we can shed more light on this
this issue. Testing is very important to me. It's been one of the
major stumbling blocks for me in terms of completely adopting OSGi.
