We now have a jar file with SCA composite in it which uses implementation.spring. This SCA application is working fine.
Now we want to use OSGi services within this application. Fore example the Spring bean which is being exposed as an SCA component might have properties which are being bound to OSGi services.
We haven't been able to find a working sample for this scenario. Trying to put our SCA enabled jar in an OSGi EBA didn't work as the SCA composite in the EBA does'nt get resolved.

The SCA Feature Pack needs to be at fixpack level 126.96.36.199  to work with the OSGI and JPA Feature Pack. The SCA Info Center was also updated to explain how to use SCA with OSGI Applications . A good place to start is the "Start here" doc . You can use OSGI applications as SCA component implementation as described in .
You can't put the SCA jar into the EBA. See "Deploying OSGi applications that use SCA"  and "Multiple SCA implementation packaging considerations" .
Hope this helps,

thanks for the information and links. We were able to create an SCA application with OSGiApp as implementation. It seems at present blueprint is the only supported OSGi implementation and Spring DM is not supported.

I think you're probably already aware, but just to link the two threads up. This thread describes the position regarding SpringDM & SCA and how it should be possible to get it to work (albeit with a bit of Blueprint) - https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=14476189

thanks for the reply. We were able to create a sample SCA application with implementation as implementation.osgiapp. The OSGi app describes its services exposed to SCA via Blueprint services but internally uses Spring DM for describing OSGi service dependencies and dependency injection.
