Tim Diekmann

Since its initial meeting in January, 2007 the OSGi Enterprise Expert Group has made significant progress in addressing enterprise requirements for OSGi software, such as including a Spring based component model, introducing J2EE modularity, adopting SCA intents and bindings, and configuring and discovering various types of distribution software. The EEG was formed to standardize the OSGi approach to such enterprise requirements as multi-JVM services, improved management, and enhanced qualities of service. In this short-talk, co-chairs Tim Diekmann and Eric Newcomer will give an overview of the current activities and the proposed timeline for revising the OSGi specification. This talk is part of the OSGi DevCon and assumes little previous knowledge of OSGi and therefore is also of interest for non-OSGi members.

As CTO, Eric is responsible for establishing and communicating IONA's technology direction. Eric is also responsible for IONA's standards participation strategy, and is a member of the Eclipse and OSGi Boards. He is also a respected industry expert in Web services and transaction processing, with author credits to three widely read books.

Tim is a Software Architect in the HiPath applications product line group with focus on light weight container technologies. He is currently developing an innovative unified communications product for the enterprise market based on OSGi container technology. Tim is representing Siemens in the OSGi Alliance and works on contributions to the specifications. He is a co-chair of the EEG.
