HHH-7527  will address Hibernate ORM in OSGi environments.
This task obviously has many design considerations and sub-tasks. Today, we created a
Proposal Wiki  to start brainstorming many of the topics. We'd sincerely appreciate
the communities involvement and feedback, especially with respect to identifying the many
types of OSGi environment use cases.
The best way to help is to join the discussion on HHH-7527. Thanks!
