Lipstick on a Pig, OSGi and JEE

So it looks like OSGi isn’t a secret anymore… it continues to be adopted by the JEE crowd according to a new press release. The only problem with that press release is that it’s somewhat of a farce. I know of only a couple companies that are truly pushing OSGi as the actual application model… not the decrepit JEE stack of technologies like EJBs and friends.

Sure, it’s nice to say that you’re taking advantage of OSGi as the runtime for your application server, but how about for the application model? Once we have bundles running on desktops, servers and devices… things start to become very interesting as this will be the first time I think the industry has one application model across target environments (desktop, server, device).

Maybe all my agnst against JEE is coming out today šŸ™‚

What do you think?
