OSGi development tooling is the next big challenge for the adoption of OSGi in the enterprise. There are a number of great tools out there: PDE, BND, Maven, Sigil etc but little coherency between them. The OSGi Alliance has arranged a Tools Summit after EclipseCon and this BOF is a chance for people to come and raise any comments, criticisms and suggestions around OSGi development tooling prior to this summit.
David Savage is a software engineer focused on building scalable, modular, dynamic networked software. Currently working for Paremus as a lead architect on the Newton, Sigil and Infiniflow product suites. Infiniflow is an OSGi based distributed runtime with self healing, scaling and monitoring capabilities. Newton is an open source framework upon which Infiniflow is based. Sigil is a set of development tools based on Eclipse and Ivy for developing and building OSGi applications.

Peter Kriens is the OSGi Director of Technology and CEO of aQute. He has worked as consultant for a large number of international companies introducing OO techniques. In 94 he moved to Sweden to work for Ericsson, where he worked on a number of commercial and research projects. In 2001, he was hired part-time by the OSGi to act as its technical director, in which capacity he was the editor of the specifications. He currently also acts as the OSGi Evangelist.

Chris is the co-lead for the Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment (PDE) project and a jack of all trades at EclipseSource. Chris tends to be all over the place inside the Eclipse community by committing on various Eclipse projects and also bringing in new projects. He sits on the Eclipse Architecture Council, the Technology PMC and the Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors. Chris's passions are software advocacy, open-source, running, tooling, modularity and anything related to Eclipse. He's always available to discuss open-source or Eclipse over a frosty beverage.
