The OSGi platform provides an attractive foundation for building enterprise applications. However, it lacks a rich programming model for components declaration and consumption. New in OSGi 4.2, the Blueprint Service (inspired by Spring Dynamic Modules project) addresses this gap by offering a proven programming model based on inversion of control, suitable for enterprise (Java) applications.
This talk will provide a tour of the Blueprint Service: we'll begin with an architectural overview, continue with the core features such as creating and wiring modules, lifecycle management and service registry interaction all without being tied to the OSGi API and conclude by looking at the Blueprint Service in action.
