This talk will combine an introduction to the OSGi Remote Services and Remote Service Admin specifications with some compelling examples that illustrate their use and flexibility. It will also take a look at topics that these specifications have left deliberately open, such as topology management, i.e. service wire-up policy, and discuss the potential for innovation in these areas.
