OSGi enRoute is an OSGi project to make OSGi as easy to use as some of non-java dynamic web development environments but still provide the benefits of OSGi's strong modularity. OSGi makes it easy to get started with OSGi by providing an integrated tool chain with several runtime environments, that uses OSGi as it always was intended to be used. By leveraging OSGi's powerful features like services and the powerful requirement/capability model, development of applications can be significantly simplified.
This presentation will provide an introduction to OSGi, the way it is used in enRoute, and then a demo of how to build an application with enRoute.
