    Hi Ravi,
    I'm afraid the OSGi HTTP service is not available in the liberty profile.

    WebSphere Application Server does not provide an implementation of the HTTPService specification in either the full profile or the liberty profile.

    Thanks

    Hi Ravi, I'm not sure what you mean by "get HttpService reference". Could you please elaborate.

    I'm aware of Ralf's blog on how to get the equinox http service implementation working in WAS. I've not tried this approach on the Liberty Profile. As others have stated, we don't support the HttpService, but Ralf's blog enables it as part of the application, so that's really up to you if you want to go that route. The HttpService is pretty popular, and personally I like what others have done to extend it with whiteboard pattern support for servlet registration. If you'd like us to consider adding HttpService support, could you please raise a request for enhancement (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/). Many thanks.
    Regards, Graham.
