Liberate your components with OSGi services

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Converting any large application to be OSGi based is a difficult and complex process. Many projects find the fences that OSGi put in place puts insurmountable barriers in the way of success. Many projects get a short way through to embrace the concept of modules, but frequently they get no further and as a result they do not see the many benefits of OSGi.

OSGi server runtimes - build, borrow or buy?

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Enterprise OSGi is a new and growing area within enterprise software. The OSGi Enterprise specifications cover a wide range of useful technologies, and there are lots of implementations appearing across Eclipse, Apache and elsewhere. Obviously choice is a great thing, but the explosive growth of Enterprise OSGi has left many people confused about how to integrate these projects with each other.

There are a number of different Enterprise OSGi platforms available. Eclipse Virgo, Apache Geronimo, Glassfish and WebSphere all support some form of Enterprise OSGi applications. But which solution should you choose, and why? What about projects like Apache Karaf, and products like the Paremus Service Fabric? Might it be better to build your own runtime solution from existing components?
