    Sounds like you are trying to re-invent OSGi? The linker is the powerful OSGi requirements / capabilities metadata – and the resolver behaviours. The new R5 resolver specification supports multiple namespaces enabling support for complex environmental and application layer dependencies. The loader? Well the OSGi runtime. Also no-longer  is not limited to Java! Paremus are wrapping traditional applications like MongoDB and installing them dynamically and managing them as OSGi artifacts – but running on the OS instead of in an OSGi framework!

    Not trying to be hostile to OSGi, but if it solved the problem easily and beyond Java, wouldn’t everyone be using it?

    Richard, I am very interested to learn about OSGi outside of the Java world. Do you have pointers to public articles of such usage?
