OSGi server runtimes - build, borrow or buy?

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

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?
