  4. 4. What is the OSGi Alliance?• OSGi™ - The Dynamic Module System for Java™• Independent non-profit corporation comprised of worldwide consortium of technology innovators & developers• Focused on interoperability of applications & services based on its Module System• Founded in 1998 by IBM, Ericsson, Nortel, Sybase, Sun, Motorola, Oracle, Nokia, and many others• Originally was JSR8• Goal was to develop a standard for home automation• The Alliance provides specifications, reference implementations, test suites and certification
  5. 5. OSGI Alliance• Alliance members represent diverse markets including SmartHome, automotive electronics, mobile and enterprise• 3 levels of membership – Full, – Adopter Associate, – Supporter (Free!)• Further details on OSGi Alliance Membership at

  10. 10. Thanks for getting involved• Open Floor later• We want your input: – What do you want from the Forum? – What meeting topics would you like covered? – Any suggestions?
  11. 11. News & Announcements• OSGi DevCon 2012 – March 26-29, 2012 – Reston, VA• Users’ Forum DC Metro Meeting at OSGi DevCon 2012 – March 27, 2012 – 7:00 – Reston, VA – Free to members• OSGi Training Course - TBA
  12. 12. OSGi DevCon• For more information :
  13. 13. Introduction to OSGi
  14. 14. What does OSGi stand for?• Open Services Gateway initiative – This abbreviation is no longer used• “The Dynamic Module System for Java” – Designed to be light weight and dynamic – Allows to partition a system into a number of modules (a.k.a. bundles) – Strict visibility rules (similar to private and protected) – Resolution of dependencies and versioning – Dynamic Modules can be installed, started, stopped, uninstalled and updated - all at runtime
  15. 15. What is the OSGi Service Platform• A Java framework for developing remotely deployed service applications, that require: – Reliability – Large scale distribution – Wide range of devices – Collaborative• Created through collaboration of industry leaders• Spec 4.0+ publicly available at
  16. 16. OSGi Environment Bundle Bundle Bundle = service interface exported and imported Bundle (Application/Service) by bundles OSGi•Open standard and based on Java•Sits on top of the operatingsystem (thus is OS independent) Java VM•Not device or CPU specific.•Client-server software Operating Systemarchitecture Driver Driver Driver Hardware
  17. 17. OSGi Framework• Allows applications to share a single Java VM• Manages applications – Life cycle, Java Packages, Security, Dependencies between applications• Service registry for collaboration• Extensive notification mechanism
  18. 18. OSGi Bundles• OSGi specification defines the OSGi as the unit of modularization• A bundle is – Cohesive – Self-contained unit • Defines dependencies to other modules/services • Explicitly defines its external API (interface) – A jar file with additional meta information stored in the MANIFEST.MF file
  19. 19. MANIFEST.MF FileManifest-Version: 1.0Bundle-ManifestVersion: 2Bundle-Name: Popup Plug-in Bundle-SymbolicName:de.vogella.rcp.intro.commands.popup; singleton:=trueBundle-Version: 1.0.0 Bundle-Activator: de.vogella.rcp.intro.commands.popup.ActivatorRequire-Bundle: org.eclipse.ui, org.eclipse.core.runtimeBundle-ActivationPolicy: lazyBundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment: JavaSE-1.6
  20. 20. Cooperative Model• Bundles can cooperate through: – service objects – package sharing• A dynamic registry allows a bundle to find and track service objects• Framework fully manages this cooperation – Dependencies, security
  21. 21. Service Specifics• A service is an object registered with the Framework by a bundle to be used by other bundles service• The semantics and syntax of a service are specified in a Java interface
  22. 22. Services & Java Interfaces public interface Log { public void log(String s); } Gets from Framework interface (with query) Bundle Logpublic class SimpleLog implements Log { public void log(String s) { System.out.println( s ); implements }} Simple IBM Motorola Log Log Log
  23. 23. Dependencies• The Framework manages the dependencies between bundles• Bundles that are installed and started will register services• Framework will automatically unregister services when a bundle stops• Event notifications for all important events
  24. 24. Dependencies Install A Framework start Bundle A {} Bundle B {} events: install= service, java interface Bundle C {}
  25. 25. Dependencies FrameworkUninstall stop Bundle A {} Bundle B events: {} unregister events: uninstall = service, java interface Bundle C {}
  26. 26. The Classpath in OSGi• Each bundle has its own class loader• Bundles can only shares packages when: – Import and export clauses in the manifest match – Have permission to do so for those packages• The framework manages the overall CLASSPATH for bundles• Assures that all bundles use the same class (of the same version)• Tracks shared usage of packages between bundles
  27. 27. Key OSGi Features• Modularization• Dynamic Runtime• Service Orientation
  28. 28. What problems does OSGi solve?• Visibility By default, a bundle is a black box. Its completely protected and you cant see inside it, not even with reflection or any other classloading trickery. Only exported packages are visible outside of the exporting bundle. This stops unintended coupling between modules, enables independent development, faster development cycles and security.
  29. 29. What problems does OSGi solve?• Operational Control An OSGi container allows you to see all modules and their status - using the OSGi console or JMX. You can get information on wiring, install new bundles, activate bundles (and publish services), deactivate bundles (and unregister services), refresh bundles, stop bundles and uninstall bundles. The beauty? You can do all of this without stopping or restarting the application!
  30. 30. Who doing OSGi containers?• Open-source implementations: Equinox, Felix (Apache), Knopflerfish• Significant Enterprise usage: Eclipse, Netbeans, IBM (WebSphere), Red (Jboss), Oracle (Glassfish, WebLogic), TIBCO ESB, WSO2 Carbon, Fuse ESB…
  31. 31. Who’s doing frameworks?• Hitachi provides a complete OSGi solution yet with standards compliant and potentially independent elements (only vendor with all 4 elements): 1. JVM Options (to insure broadest availability of ported JVMs and optimized JVMs): • SuperJEngine (optimized CVM) (better performance, less memory, non- open source) • or Oracle Binary solutions: CDC JVM or JavaSE Embedded (reduce risk; add value) 2. SuperJFramework (client software) (performance, less memory, not open source) • SuperJManagement Agent (links to SJDMS) (meets SPs authentication & security) 3. SuperJDMS (Management Server) (manage clients/bundles/apps in device; large scale) 4. SuperJTools (SDK development tools for 3rd party apps) (Eclipse based)
