(1) Interfaces for algorithms, datasets, and data converters.We will explain in details how to apply OSGi technology to the design of the CIShell plug-in architecture and how to build various application solutions including the standalone GUI applications and Web front-end solution based on OSGi specifications and Equinox implementations.
(2) Interfaces for basic services including Conversion Service and GUI Builder Service.
(3) Interfaces for application services including Scheduler Service and Data Management Service.
