EclipseCon: OSGi for Eclipse Developers

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“:


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!
