Second milestone of Spring-OSGi released

Past Friday Costin Leau announced the second milestone build of the Spring-OSGi project. This is an update to the M1 release and fixes some compatibility issues. Aside from some maven build stuff and improved OSGi manifest definitions there seems to be nothing really new in there. The explicit support for web apps is still missing... :-(

But my colleague Bernd Kolb told me that he succeeded in setting up the pet shop example via OSGi with just a few hacks, getting the Spring-OSGi stuff to work nicely within the web app using Equinox and the embedded jetty. I hope his code will be public available soon so that everybody can see how easy and nice it is to implement client-server and web applications using OSGi and Spring together. :-)
