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!
