          It seems that you are trying to bootstrap the equinox framework inside the jboss framework.

          What is this supposed to do?

            Hi Thomas,


            Thanks for the reply.


            I suppose to do the following task.


            1. I have to install 2 bundles

            2. I have one service interface in first bundle and i am accessing that service from servlet which is there in the second bundle.Find the snippet of code below


              import sample.http.SimpleService;


              private SimpleService service ;

                      public HttpServiceTracker(BundleContext context,SimpleService service) {

                                super(context, HttpService.class.getName(), null);

                                this.service = service;

                                System.out.println(" service HttpServiceTracker() ---------->"+service);




                      public Object addingService(ServiceReference reference) {

                                HttpService httpService = (HttpService) context.getService(reference);

                                try {

                                          System.out.println(" service addingService() ---------->"+service);

                                          httpService.registerServlet("/helloworld2", new HelloWorldServlet(service), null, null); //$NON-NLS-1$

                                } catch (Exception e) {



                                return httpService;



            3.I am getting NullpointerException when i  try to call Service method in the first bundle.It is not refering the ServiceTracker class which is there in the org.osgi.compendium-4.2.0.jar.

            4.As the ServiceTracker is also availabe in the org.eclipse.osgi_3.2.2.R32x_v20070118.jar file, i am trying to place this jar in the Jboss.

            5.When i start the server i m getting the above error.


            please find the attached jars (bundles) for ur reference.

              The OSGi core APIs (including ServiceTracker) are already available in AS7. You do not need to install additional bundles for those APIs.

              Have a look at the JavaEE integration example. It shows how to access an OSGi service from a web app.


              The code is here.
