LPS-32349 introduced in Liferay the ability to deploy manage OSGi bundles and LPS-32502 gave it a UI for Portal Administrators. So far this is available for those cases in which developers create the OSGi bundle themselves
This story expands all those benefits to Liferay plugins by automatically converting them into OSGi bundles on deployment. This is very useful for those developers who don't know about OSGi but still want to get the benefits it provides within Liferay. It is also useful for Portal Administrators who will be able to manage the full lifecycle of all deployed plugins even if their developers didn't explicitly prepared them to work on an OSGi environment.
