An Introduction to OSGi

I just saw this presentation by Peter Kriens regarding OSGi… it’s a pretty solid introduction.

My favorite take aways and quotes from the presentation:

…last week at EclipseCon there was a presentation by John Wells from BEA (WebLogic)… he said we always thought that we were working modular… it was in our process descriptions… we had reviews for it… we really thought we were modular until we started using OSGi… suddenly we found we weren’t working modular and everything was connected to each other… OSGi makes that really visible… it’s very easy to see the dependency graph between bundles…

Eclipse… love it…

Ok, maybe that last quote is taken a bit out of context, but it’s rare when Peter says Eclipse and love in the same sentence 🙂
