Everit Component Registry is an amazingly simple yet powerful new open source Component Model. The primary goal of its concept is to allow more configuration options via Configuration Admin and by doing that, offer an alternative to the de-facto standard, whiteboard pattern.
The implementation of Everit Component Registry is in progress. The goal of the session is to
The WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile makes extensive use of OSGi technologies to achieve a dynamic, compact, flexible and powerful application server. Using a foundation of Equinox, Subsytems, Configuration Admin, Metatype, and Declarative Services, we built a right-sized elastically-capable runtimes which allows users to get going with (almost) zero-setup, (almost) zero-hardware, and (really) zero-migration.

This talks describe the challenges, experiences and pitfalls stumbled upon the migration of existing Eclipse RCP applications to BndTools.
The driving force behind this migration was to leverage the power of the state-of-the art OSGi tooling BndTools for our daily work. So we wanted get the new kid on the block - BndTools! into our existing tool chain based upon Eclipse, Apache Ant and IBM Jazz/RTC as SCM system.
Because of the fast growing interest in IoT, smart home solution are now becoming mainstream. We are expecting 17.4 million systems installed systems by 2017 just in Europe. Big corporates like Apple, Google, Samsung, AT&T, Deutsche Telekom are investing huge amounts of money in the development or acquisition of smart home technologies. Almost every week you can find new crowd funded projects, such as from LIFX, Canary, and SmartThings. Venture capital companies also invest in smart home startups, many of which originated in crowd funded projects.
