Equinox: Improving and Evolving the Core Framework

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

The Equinox OSGi Framework implementation has provided the core modularity runtime used by Eclipse for 9 releases and the reference implementation of the OSGi Framework for the past 5 OSGi specification releases. Needless to say the evolution of the code has not always gone as planned. Many times the OSGi expert groups would go down one design path while we prototyped the idea in Equinox and then the OSGi expert groups would change the design later, sometimes in drastic ways. This would force us to re-implement the design on short notice, often late in the release cycle.
