As suggested by this tweet - https://twitter.com/#!/hekonsek/status/200298152480346116 - it would be nice to add support for Akka inside ServiceMix.
Fixed in https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1458371
The latest version of akka-osgi-aries is not compatible with the Aries 1.0.x we have in Apache ServiceMix 5, so I copied the namespace handler code in our codebase for now so we can support the example. I'll follow up with the Akka community to get these changes included in a future Akka release, so we can switch back to the original bundles afterwards.
The necessary improvements to Akka are available in Akka 2.1.x which requires Scala 2.10. Deferring this to the next version, when we can also pick up a corresponding camel-scala release in Camel 2.11.x
Previously mentioned assembla ticket is fixed - OSGi headers have been added to all Akka modules.
Next step is to create a few helper clases to make bootstrapping the system inside an OSGi container a bit easier.
Currently working to get http://www.assembla.com/spaces/akka/tickets/1812-regression---missing-osgi-headers-in-meta-inf-manifest-mf resolved at the Akka end first, so we can leverage those bundles directly instead of having to create our own.
