Introduction to OSGi with Pax, Maven, and Nexus Professional

We've released a pre-alpha version of the Maven Cookbook which contains a chapter on OSGi development with Maven via the Pax plugin from OPS4J. This chapter contains a series of recipes which will walk you through the process of creating an OSGi project, importing bundles from both a Maven repository and existing OSGi Bundle Repositories (OBR), and executing an OSGi runtime environment all with the help of the Maven Pax Plugin.
