Apache Sling as an OSGi-powered REST middleware

Apache Sling is an innovative web framework built on top of the Java Content Repository (JCR), that uses OSGi for its component model and fosters RESTful application design.

Apache Sling is designed as a set of loosely coupled OSGi bundles aggregated into a single jar or war launcher. Extensibility is internally achieved by using OSGi services. Even though Sling was initially designed for JSR-283 content repositories, building on top of the OSGi service registry allows plugging in multiple data sources - resource providers in Sling parlance.
