The RAP project enables developers to build rich, Ajax-enabled Web applications by using the Eclipse development model, plug-ins with the well known Eclipse workbench extenstion points, JFace, and a widget toolkit with SWT API (using qooxdoo for the client-side presentation).
It allows developers to create Rich Internet Applications (RIA) using the OSGi standard component model. The main advantage of this technology is the ability to share the same Java code base for RCP and RIA applications.
You may also want to look at Equinox, which is an implementation of the OSGi R4 core framework specification, a set of bundles that implement various optional OSGi services and other infrastructure for running OSGi-based systems.
