OSGi DevCon · Standard
Tuesday, 16:00, 20 minutes | Stevens Creek
OSGi provides a simple yet powerful set of tools for building modular Java applications. Modularity in turn provides a fundamental mechanism for managing software complexity. But some have argued that OSGi can itself be too complex. This talk will explore this apparent contradiction and provide practical advice on tooling and processes that can aid in the migration to an OSGi based runtime.
