Distributed OSGi is a new component of the upcoming OSGi 4.2 specification. Developed in the OSGi Enterprise Expert Group as RFC 119, Distributed OSGi is a standard that enables the distribution of OSGi Services.
The first part of the talk will explain how Distributed OSGi was designed and how you use it. The second part of the talk will consist of a demo of Distributed OSGi based on concrete service examples. The audience will get a feeling for the programming model as the differences and pitfalls of distributed services are discussed.
At the end of the talk the audience will have a good idea what this new standard is about and they should be able to start experimenting with it themselves using one of the available implementations.
Note the demo will be conducted using the Reference Implementations of the DSW and Discovery components of Distributed OSGi.
