Why should I care about OSGi

Adrian Colyer talks about OSGi and what benefits comes with using it.

Development time benefits

  • Strict development time (and runtime) enforcement of module boundaries
  • A service-oriented architecture that works for managing service dependencies between modules.
  • Better ability to structure development teams the way you want to
  • Faster team-based development
  • Faster testing cycles
  • Support for versioning as part of dependency management

Runtime benefits

  • Full information about the installed modules and their wiring is available at runtime – a level of insight operations teams have never had before
  • Isolate changes
  • Share dependencies
  • Use just the server facilities you need

All this assumptions are backed up with arguments in his article.
