Apache CXF provides the Reference Implementation of the Distribution Software (DSW) component of the Distributed OSGi Specification (RFC 119 in http://www.osgi.org/download/osgi-4.2-early-draft3.pdf).
It implements RFC 119 using Web Services, leveraging SOAP over HTTP and exposing the Web Service over a WSDL contract.
An implementation of the RFC 119 Discovery service is also worked on in this project.
