Abstract: The OSGi specification are adopted in an increasing number of projects: Eclipse, Cocoon, Spring, Felix, Knopflerfish, Nokia phones, and BMW cars. And these are just the highly visible parts, there is an avalanche of projects on its way. The specifications provide a common model for writing and deploying applications to local or remote computers in modularized form. Instead of creating monolithic applications, the OSGi specifications allow the collaboration of many small components. This presentation will show you why a specification like OSGi is crucial, what it really encompasses, and what the future developments will be.
