The target audience of this talk are both experienced implementors who are interested in the inner workings of the OSGi framework and beginner OSGi programmers who are interested in why third-party libs "don't find their classes". A short demo based on the Knopflerfish OSGi framework will be provided and limitations of the methods will be mentioned.
Erik Wistrand has been working with the OSGi specification and reference implementation since 1999 at former Gatespace AB, currently Makewave AB. He was the lead in the process of creating the open source Knopflerfish OSGi framework in 2004. As a human-computer interaction specialist he was a co-founder of the data visualization company Spotfire Inc. He's now working with Makewave AB to expand the applications areas of the Knopflerfish OSGi framework.
