What's new in the OSGi 4.2 Enterprise Release

  1. 1. What's new in the OSGi 4.2 Enterprise Specification David Bosschaert, 2010
  2. 2. History ● EEG formed early 2007 ● Work areas identified and work started ● Work areas: ● Distributed Services ● Developer Support / Spring DM ● JEE – related specifications ● Remote Services & Blueprint specs part of 4.2 core/compendium release summer 2009 ● Culmination of the work done in 4.2 Enterprise Release, Q1 2010
  3. 3. 4.2 Enterprise Specification Component Models Naming, Management ● Blueprint ● JNDI ● Declarative Services ● JMX Distributed Services Database Access ● Remote Services ● JDBC ● Remote Services Admin ● JPA ● SCA Configuration Type ● JTA Web Applications Supporting Technologies ● Http Service Spec ● Events, Config Admin, User ● Web Container Spec Admin, Trackers, ...
  4. 4. Blueprint Blueprint makes developing for OSGi easier. ● Create Blueprint Components ● Based on ideas from Spring Dynamic Modules ● Blueprint Component ≈ Spring DM Bean ● Inversion of Control ● Dependency on other components or OSGi Services ● Register components as Services
  5. 5. Blueprint example Bundle component.xml <blueprint xmlns="..."> package org.example.test; <reference id="logSvc" interface="org.osgi.service.log.LogService"/> import org.osgi.service.log.LogService; <bean id="myComponent" public class MyComponent implements MyInterface class="org.example.test.MyComponent" { init-method="started"> private LogService logService; <property name="dbURL" private String dbURL; value="jdbc:foo://bar"/> <property name="logService" public String getDbURL() { ref="logSvc"/> return dbURL; </bean> } <service ref="myComponent" public void setDbURL(String url) { interface="org.example.test.MyInterface"/> dbURL = url; </blueprint> } public void setLogService(LogService log) { logService = log; Blueprint manifest header: } Bundle-Blueprint: OSGI-INF/blueprint/*.xml public void started() { logService.log(LogService.LOG_INFO, "MyComponent started. DB URL: " + dbURL); } }
  6. 6. Distributed OSGi Distributed OSGi (RFC 119) split up into three specs: ● Remote Services spec released in 4.2 Compendium Summer 2009 API to expose and consume remote OSGi Services (service properties) ● Remote Services Admin spec new in the Enterprise Release Standardizes the APIs of internal Remote Services components, allowing mix & match of sub-components (like Discovery) ● SCA Configuration spec If you want to use SCA metadata for configuration
  7. 7. Remote Services (in brief) Export a service remotely: Import a remote service: ● Add an extra service property ● With Discovery public class Activator implements BundleActivator { private ServiceRegistration reg; automatic public void start(BundleContext bc) { Dictionary props = new Hashtable(); ● With static props.put("service.exported.interfaces", "*"); <endpoint-description> files // optionally, configure some details // for example props.put("service.exported.configs", ● All client-side proxies ""); props.put("", services have "http://localhost:9090/greeter"); service.imported reg = bc.registerService( GreeterService.class.getName(), new GreeterServiceImpl(), props); property set. // Greeter Service now accessible // over network } …
  8. 8. Remote Service Admin Standardizes the API of components under the hood ● Distribution Provider, Topology Manager, Discovery VM1 creates remote invocation Distribution Topology remote Discovery Distribution Topology service Discovery network Provider Provider instructs Manager Manager metadata Component Component X listens D D T T DP DP creates X' X' a service by some listens bundle Service Service Client Client Bundle Bundle VM2
  9. 9. Web Applications Deploy your webapps straight into an OSGi Framework Supports .WAR and .WAB files ● Deploy them just like any other bundle ● .WAB primary deployment format – Is a proper bundle, with BSN, package Imports & Exports, etc... – Required Manifest header: Web-ContextPath: /myServlet ● .WARs are turned into a .WAB via a URL handler, e.g. webbundle:file:///mywebapp.war?Web-ContextPath=/myServlet
  10. 10. Web Applications (2) Support for interaction with OSGi Framework ● Access to Bundle Context from within a Servlet BundleContext bc = (BundleContext) servletContext.getAttribute("osgi-bundlecontext"); ● Servlet Context registered in OSGi Service Registry – For every successfully started Web Application
  11. 11. JPA Proper database persistence for OSGi ● Don't use static Persistence class to create an EntityManager ● Look up EntityManagerFactory or EntityManagerFactoryBuilder in the Service Registry ● A bundle defining Persistence Units declares this using the OSGi/JPA header: Meta-Persistence: OSGI-INF/people-persistence.xml ● Look up Filter filter: ( interface: javax.persistence.EntityManagerFactory
  12. 12. JPA (2) Small example: EntityManagerFactory emf = … // from OSGi Service Registry // From here everything is familiar EntityManager em = emf.createEntityManager(); em.getTransaction().begin(); Person person = new Person(); person.setName("David"); em.persist(person); em.getTransaction().commit(); …
  13. 13. JNDI Access to OSGi from JNDI clients ● Look up OSGi Services and BundleContext through JNDI osgi: scheme osgi:service/javax.sql.DataSource osgi:service/my_service (if service sets the property) osgi:servicelist/javax.sql.DataSource osgi:framework/bundleContext Access to JNDI for OSGi Bundles ● Look up JNDI in OSGi Service Registry – JNDIContextManager Service provides access JNDI Initial Context – Service registry preferred over calling new InitialContext()
  14. 14. JTA Provides OSGi services in the registry: ● javax.transaction.UserTransaction ● javax.transaction.TransactionManager ● javax.transaction.TransactionSynchronizationRegistry Supports XA Resources.
  15. 15. JDBC Database Drivers registered in the OSGi Service Registry as DataSourceFactory objects ● With APIs to create – javax.sql.DataSource – javax.sql.ConnectionPoolDataSource – javax.sql.XADataSource – java.sql.Driver
  16. 16. JMX ● JMX access to the OSGi Framework ● Framework Control (Bundle lifecycle) ● Bundle information ● Service information ● Services supported ● Package Admin ● Configuration Admin ● Permission Admin ● Initial Provisioning ● User Admin
  17. 17. Examples? ● Apache Aries Trader ● Leverages – Blueprint – Web – JPA / JDBC – JTA – JNDI ● Besides that lots of more isolated examples can be found in the various implementing projects.
  18. 18. Future EEG work Besides refinements to current specs... ● Subsystems & Applications ● OBR ● Async communications ● JMS ● Message Driven Components ● Asynchronous Services ● ...
