OSGi Community Event 2013 (http://www.osgi.org/CommunityEvent2013/Schedule)
Carsten and David will look at new and updated OSGi specs that are in the works. Developing components has never been easier. Learn more about the new Prototype Service Factory, OSGi/CDI integration and the improved annotation support for Declarative Services.
Many people are realizing that OSGi is a great foundation technology for fluid cloud-computing architectures where the deployments change dynamically and applications don't simply scale by duplicating the entire VMs but by providing extra capacity exactly to those components that need it. Work is being done to create standards that facilitate such a portable OSGi cloud in ‘Cloud Ecosystems’ and the REST API specs. Learn more about these and other upcoming specs during this talk.
