Lightweight Software Labs with Eclipse RT in the Cloud

Imagine your boss tells you to set up the cloud-infrastructure for a public trial system in three days. It should consist of isolated software labs where the trial users are able to execute their uploaded web applications. When a user joins the trial, a sandbox for his personal use should be created on-the-fly. In this sandbox he can access, manage, and monitor his latest application whenever he wants.

You think this is impossible? We thought the same :-).

How Dense is the Cloud of OSGi?

The use of OSGi technology has evolved over the past decade from being used to manage devices (service gateways etc.), to providing an extensible framework for desktop applications (Eclipse RCP), to being used by a majority of JEE servers for implementing extensible and modular servers, and as a programming model for developing server-side applications as well as applications deployed to the cloud.

Delivering "native" Eclipse software packages

Everyone knows that SAT4J, P2 and Eclipse are written in Java, because of Java's overall greatness (and portability). However, the portability often means similar behaviour on different platforms, which is great for many, many things, but not for the installation management.

Users expect software to be installed in a "native" way, using system installers. It is pretty easy to build a "working" solution, but getting a right solution was nearly impossible, mostly due to the number of possible interferences between P2 and the native installer.
