OSGi-based Workflow Engine

In this talk Doreen Seider introduces a platform developed during an aeronautics project, RCE.

Declarative Services: Dependency Injection OSGi style

In this talk, Felix Meschberger presents a powerful but straightforward method of dependency injection (as defined by the OSGi Compendium Declarative Services specification).

Pragmatic Architecture Recipes for Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing, the industry's next big buzzword, is applied liberally to ensure services and products are perceived as being cool and innovative.

Irresponsible architectures

Since the very first days of software we have been developing strategies to support ever bigger and more complex application requirements.
