What do you recommend for building RCP Swing applications that use OSGi for dynamic module handling?

After a more thorough search I think I have a better picture on what is available for that purpose so I want to share this with you:

The closest match (as I found later) to what I wanted is netbeans and its plugin architecture. But, it is not based on osgi. Instead it has its own architecture. There is, however some effort to provide support for OSGi: http://wiki.netbeans.org/OSGiAndNetBeans

I also found https://spar.dev.java.net/ but this project hasn't had any updates for a while.

There is also apache felix http://felix.apache.org/ osgi implementation with some swing examples, and spring has its dynamic modules http://www.springsource.org/osgi but neither of these two has any swing rcp components that are ready to use.
