OSGi 4.2 Early Draft

An early draft of the OSGi 4.2 spec is out. Learn about:

  • Security Enhancements
  • BundleTracker (kind of like ServiceTracker but for bundles!)
  • Bundle-License header (finally, but something more to tool…)
  • Service Registry Hooks
  • A common CLI for OSGi! (finally!)
  • Declarative Services Updates
  • Transactions in OSGi
  • Distributed OSGi (smells unnecessarily complicated but cool)
  • Common Component Model (Spring-DM)

It looks like there’s a lot of cool things going into 4.2… especially things like Distributed OSGi which can have a lot of downstream ramifications on people who use OSGi and want to use it in a distributed fashion.
