OSGi is providing a module system, but during implementation in projects it becomes difficult to really use the benefits of an OSGi runtime. Without follow the principles an OSGi system can evolve to a tightly-coupled system like in the past. Some principles and guidelines have to be followed to achieve a good architecture of a software system: - interface/implementation separation for bundles - visibility usage of bundles (import/export) - extensibility for services (and special focus on declarative services) - layering of bundles and using declarative service for layer communication - mocking of layers to achieve maturity of the implementation - interface evolution of bundles to achieve extensibility The presentation will show the changes by refactoring a small web application. The application starts as a tightly coupled system and will be improved by applying the architecture principles. So, in the presentation a lot of coding will be shown, until a good structure of the application is achieved. The guidelines are based on experiences in different projects and are used as best practices in new projects.
