EclipseCon: OSGi for Eclipse Developers

I spent a good portion of my day today working on one of my EclipseCon 2009 presentations that I’ll be giving with Bernd Kolb and Martin Lippert, “OSGi for Eclipse Developers“:

osgieclipse 300x224 EclipseCon: OSGi for Eclipse Developers

It should be a fun talk because all of us are experienced Eclipse guys with in depth OSGi knowledge. We all have our own horror stories about working with Eclipse developers in the field and introducing them to the more exotic parts of OSGi.

We plan to cover these topics:

  • Import-Package vs. Require-Bundle
  • Dynamic Bundles
  • Extensions vs. Services
  • Compendium Services
  • OSGi Tooling in Eclipse

Do you have any particular ideas about a topic you want to hear about? We’re open to suggestions as we finish up the talk for EclipseCon!

  1. This sounds like it a fun session, but also a huge subject to cram into 1 hour!

    On the compendium services front, I’m a big fan of the Config Admin service. It’s a natural complement to DS, and with DS soon to be included in the SDK I would like to see more use of Config Admin.

  2. Thanks Neil! I will give a special shout out to the Config Admin service.

  3. I think this will not only but fun, but also very important: Move Eclipse (people) even closer to OSGi.

    One thing I really would love to hear: 3.6 or e4 will have extensions that are OSGi services.
    That’s tough? OK, then let’s start a discussion at least ;-)

    Maybe you could also describe/mention how the Extender Pattern works with the BundleTracker, to be introducted in OSGi 4.2. Oh no wait there is a short talk about that topic: http://www.eclipsecon.org/2009/sessions?id=634 . But what about the people who do not have the chance to get to the Eclipse Con…?!
