ABSTRACT:  OSGi Introduction
OSGi concept has gained some attention over the last few years, and rightfully so. With the increasing complexity of today’s software, OSGi and its simple, light weight yet sophisticated model provides an ideal environment to build highly modular and dynamic systems which support versioning and dynamic changes over time.
This session will cover the following topics:

  • History of OSGi and problem addressed by OSGi
  • OSGi core concepts
  • OSGi as Java platform to host OSGi Bundles and Services
  • OSGi Execution Environment
  • OSGi Modules a.k.a Bundles (including packaging and deployment, role ofMANIFEST.MF)
  • OSGi as life cycle manager
  • OSGi as Service registry
  • OSGi Services
  • Standard services
  • Framework services
  • System Services
  • OSGi Class Loading and Versioning
  • Import/Export MANIFEST headers
  • OSGi Target Platform
  • Core Platforms (Equinox, Knoplerfish, Apache Felix)
  • Target Platform extensibility
  • Eclipse and all it’s variations
  • Spring-DM
  • Custom
  • Development
  • Tooling around OSGi (i.e., Eclipse PDE)
  • Maven
  • Quick intro of Spring Dynamic Modules (DM) as:
  1. bridge between raw OSGi and Spring based Applications
  2. core for Spring Source Application Platform

The following will be demonstrated:

  • Start various OSGi platforms and explore their consoles
  • Write “Hello World” OSGi Bundle and Service
  • Working with OSGi services and service listeners
  • Creating Spring-DM target platform and deploying Spring-Based application
