Enterprise OSGi 4.2 standardized the use of a number of component models for developing Enterprise OSGi applications: Servlet, JSP, Blueprint, and JPA. Implementations of these specifications have since become available in many open source projects and products such as Apache Aries, Eclipse Gemini/Virgo, GlassFish, JBoss Application Server and WebSphere Application Server. Looking at a number of these environments, it's clear that when it comes to assembly and deployment there's still something missing, namely something to represent a collection of bundles (e.g. an Application). Eclipse Virgo has "PARs" and "Plans", Apache Aries has "Applications", and WebSphere Application Server has “Applications” and “Composites”. Looking further afield to kernel projects, other bundle collection concepts exist, such as Apache Karaf "Features". Each model has concepts in common, such as identity, versioning and content, but also differences like isolation and format. It is clear that this is an area of Enterprise OSGi that could benefit from standardization and hence the Subsystems specification is being created for the Enterprise OSGi 5.0 specification.

Subsystems is an OSGi specification which standardizes artifacts representing collections of bundles, such as an Application. This presentation will introduce the Subsystems design. It will describe how Subsystems can be used for development and deployment of bundle collections with different isolation semantics, to address the application, composite and feature use cases seen in the OSGi community today. The OSGi framework provides a powerful runtime for the Java platform, which promotes strong modularity, versioning and dynamic management of bundles. Bundles installed in the framework are expected to collaborate and live together sharing the same service registry and public class space. Until now there was no standard way to provide additional isolation and lifecycle to a collection of bundles installed in a single framework. This presentation will discuss how the subsystems specification can be used to provide additional isolation to a collection of bundles or applications installed into the framework.
