ApacheCon Seville 2016 – OSGi for Outsiders – Milen Dyankov

OSGi for Outsiders – Milen Dyankov

OSGi has evolved and matured beyond recognition over the last few years. It’s now easier than ever before, to build dynamic, modular Java applications to address the challenges imposed by ever growing and constantly changing business requirements. Despite that, OSGi seems to be far from receiving the appreciation it deserves.

In this talk I’d like to go over what OSGi community is (not) doing to attract “outsiders”. I’d argue it can do better. Based on observations and conversation from the last 2 years trying to advocate for OSGi among Java developers, I’ll try to position OSGi it in today’s reality of microservices, containers, automation, Java 9, … and bring the perspective of an “outsider” together with all the presumptions, fallacies and promises. Finally I’d like to share some ideas about addressing those, promote relevant OSGi parts and perhaps make it more attractive.
