OSGi as a plugins system manager

Hi,
Lets say I'm developing a web framework like Grails or Lift and I want to create a plugins system (like plugins for JavaMail, JMS, JFreeCharts ..).
Can I use OSGi as the plugins system manager? or OSGi isn't for this type of targets?
Thanks.

Yes, you can use it that way. We touch upon this area in the book.
