Java is verbose and OSGi is a low-level framework, such that programming with the OSGi APIs can sometimes be cumbersome. Especially, for example, when using Services. This makes a good opportunity for a Scala DSL to ease OSGi development.

In this session we will show you ScalaModules, a Scala DSL to ease OSGi development. We will demonstrate the benefits over Java programming, showing some live demos. ScalaModules is a new EclipseRT project proposal.

Neil is a developer, consultant and trainer focussed principally on OSGi and Eclipse. In the past he has helped a number of large financial institutions to adopt Eclipse RCP technology, and is currently working for Sun Microsystems on improving their Eclipse-based tooling for the JavaFX platform.

He is a regular speaker at Eclipse and OSGi events – including previous EclipseCons and DevCons – and is also known for pioneering a “Google-style” approach to publishing, with his free book “OSGi in Practice” in perpetual beta.
