Java is verbose and OSGi is a low-level framework, such that programming with the OSGi APIs can sometimes be cumbersome. Especially, for example, when using Services. This makes a good opportunity for a Scala DSL to ease OSGi development.
In this session we will show you ScalaModules, a Scala DSL to ease OSGi development. We will demonstrate the benefits over Java programming, showing some live demos. ScalaModules is a new EclipseRT project proposal.
