After a short introduction about the origins of OSGi and the principles behind it, this presentation will focus on the current developments around component-based development. Although OSGi was created as a service-based platform for home gateways, it has grown into a universally applicable framework.
The talk will review JSR-277 and JSR-291, both of which are very close to OSGi and are targetted to standardize certain aspects of this technology as part of the JVM. Furthermore, several applications will be reviewed to illustrate that this architecture can be used in a broad range of environments, from mobile phones to enterprise applications.
Examples include: Eclipse, based on OSGi since 3.0, Apache Felix, an open source implementation that is the basis for several other projects such as the Apache Directory Server.
