OSGi Alliance Approves Compendium Version 4.2 - Spring Inside
Yesterday the OSGi Alliance approved and published the Core Specification Version 4.2 and Service Compendium Version 4.2 of the OSGi Service Platform Release 4. The newest core and compendium specifications are designed to make it easier for developers to implement and use OSGi technology. A key part of the release was introducing new compendium services aligned with the Spring programming model:
Blueprint Container service uses XML definitions in a bundle to create and wire application objects, and defines a dependency injection framework - specifically for OSGi bundles - that understands the unique dynamic nature of services; it provides an OSGi bundle programming model with minimal implementation dependencies and virtually no accidental complexity in the Java code;
There has never been a better time for developers familiar with Spring to try out OSGi. Get started by working with the examples in SpringSource dm Server and the Spring Dynamic Modules project that will provide the reference implementation for the spec.
