Recently a user in GlassFish forum asked about developing JAX-WS web service in an OSGi bundle. Here is a complete sample demonstrating a JAX-WS web service invoking an OSGi service via OSGi service registry. You can download it from here.

javap ignores Class-Path manifest entry

Did you know javap ignores Class-Path manifest attribute where as javac honors it? I didn't. Now I know. I have a jar called foo.jar with following manifest entry:

When my colleague Marina Vatkina sent me some code earlier today hoping a second pair of eyes would spot the obvious error, knowing how thorough Marina typically is, I knew there was no obvious error there. Simplified version of what was being attempted is shown below:
