OSGi is great at enabling you to build your systems out of sets of bundles. In a way, your bundles are your configuration. However, this also requires you to master the identification, assembly and provisioning of all of the components that make-up your system.
* How do you hot-deploy bundles for delivery?
* Is there a simple way of bootstrapping your system with specific configurations that are easy to assemble and kick-start?
* Once your system is "out there" how can you take things one-step further and manage the provisioning remotely?
* Is there an easy way to let the user discover and deploy what he wants, when he wants it?
* How can you do all of these things using existing technologies?
Well, you've come to the right place. In this workshop we will focus on ways to manage OSGi installations. Using a simple example application, we will show you how you can:
* use Fileinstall to hot-deploy bundles into your live application environment
* take advantage of Pax Runner to create and easily bootstrap configurations of bundles
* remotely manage, provision, and audit systems in the field with Apache Ace
* provide, discover, and deploy bundles using Apache Felix OBR
