There's a considerable activity in the enterprise Java community about the use of OSGi in Java EE applications. We call such applications "hybrid applications." With hybrid applications, developers can continue to build standard and familiar enterprise application components, such as Java Servlets and EJBs, and take full advantage of:
* Features such as modularity/dependency management, service dynamism, and more provided by OSGi
* Infrastructure services such as transaction management, security, persistence, and more offered by Java EE
This session will present the current state of affairs, discuss the benefits of hybrid applications, and demonstrate development and deployment of such applications.
GlassFish will be used for demonstration.
