HotRod client in OSGi

Infinispan 7.0.0.Alpha1 makes it possible to run the HotRod client in an OSGi container such as Karaf. Until this point there was no easy way to find out which libraries were required for the HotRod client to run in OSGi.

Server-side business knowledge is inherently consistent and sharable.

Beanstalkd doesn't really have access control so you will want to lock down what can talk to your server on the port it listens on. It's a deliberately lightweight protocol and I like it, but do double check that it isn't open to the internet or something!
