OSGi Community Event 2014
The WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile makes extensive use of OSGi technologies to achieve a dynamic, compact, flexible and powerful application server. Using a foundation of Equinox, Subsytems, Configuration Admin, Metatype, and Declarative Services, we built a right-sized elastically-capable runtimes which allows users to get going with (almost) zero-setup, (almost) zero-hardware, and (really) zero-migration.
This talk will discuss how Liberty uses OSGi, what OSGi gives us, why OSGi services are the best thing since sliced bread, what we've learned, and our development best practices.
