[j-nsp] how to populate a forwarding routing-instance

I want to configure FilterBasedForwarding and so I need a 
routing-instance of type forwarding.
I have no issue to populate the routing-instance with static routes; but 
in reality I would like to use bgp to populate it; and this doesn't commit.
Is it possible to use bgp for that? If not, any other way to achieve FBF 
using a routing protocol rather than static for the alternate forwarding?

+           }
+       }
