Bundle different WSO2 products into one and run in one runtime environment

Example: Bundle API Manager, ESB and BAM into one bundle and run in single JVM.

We use WSO2 Carbon [1] as the platform and on top of that we have developed reusable features. Each WSO2 product is a collection of features.
So,there are two options to achieve this requirement;
A) Take WSO2 Carbon and install required features related to API Manager, ESB and BAM on it [2]
B) Take any product (eg: ESB) and install required features of other products (eg: API Manager and BAM) [3]

Installing Carbon 4.2.0 based features on Carbon 4.4.0 is wrong and not allowed. Use WSO2 Carbon 4.2.0 feature repo and install the required features on WSO2 Carbon 4.2.0 (or on any WSO2 Carbon 4.2.0 based product as described above).

Features are available on the feature repo only when the products which use those features are released (each WSO2 Product is a collection of features. Please refer [4] for more information).
For example if you consider WSO2 ESB 4.8.1 which is based on WSO2 Carbon 4.2.0, features used for WSO2 ESB 4.8.1 are available on the feature repo when WSO2 ESB 4.8.1 is released.

WSO2 Carbon 4.3.0 and 4.4.0 was released very recently. At the moment not all products are released based on those version.
