Abstract: The idea of integrating a module system into the core Java runtime has been proposed and discussed for many years, and in Java SE 8 it may finally be happening. How will this affect OSGi developers and users? This talk will describe the main differences between OSGi and Jigsaw, the prototype OpenJDK module system. Pros and cons of each in different environments will be discussed. Finally, opportunities and challenges for interoperability: from the perspective of both application developers (who may need to integrate modules from both kinds) and from library module developers (who may need to target both module systems).
