Java EE developers increasingly want to utilize OSGi to develop modular applications for component and service-based architectures. But tools required for OSGi implementation have been slow to develop. Spring Dynamic Modules (Spring DM) is a framework that simplifies the creation of component and service-oriented architectures with OSGi, to build modular Java applications using the powerful Spring framework.
Spring Dynamic Modules in Action presents the fundamental concepts of OSGi-based apps and maps them to the familiar ideas of the Spring framework. Then, it teaches the techniques and concepts required to develop stable, flexible enterprise apps. Along the way, readers will learn to incorporate other topics including dependency injection and unit testing in an OSGi-based environment.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
OSGi is an emerging Java-based technology for developing modular enterprise applications that can grow and change easily without stopping them entirely. OSGi in Depth picks up where OSGi in Action leaves off, covering important enterprise OSGi services, such as management, configuration, event handling, and software component models. Along the way, the reader learns software engineering best practices that result in systems with flexibility, extensibility, and maintainability. This book also describes how a developer can custom-tailor the OSGi platform, which is in itself modular, by picking and choosing the appropriate services to create domain-specific application frameworks.'
