Does Spring dm considered an OSGI implementation?

Hey,
Eclipse Equinox and Apache Felix are containers that implement OSGI specifications.
Does Spring DynamicModules (DM) is considered a container similar to Equinox?
Thanks.

Hi John,

I don't have much experience with Spring DM, but to my knowledge it's not an OSGi container but instead a framework/API which makes several OSGi related tasks easier. If I remember correctly you can easily use Spring DM with any compatible OSGi container like Felix or Equinox. So it would obviously make no sense that Spring DM is an OSGi container itself
