Follow this simple step by step tutorial to get started on a simple Server Side Equinox Project.
This webinar will be an introduction to OSGi: what it is, when you should use it and how to get started learning it.
The level of this talk will be introductory and will not assume prior knowledge of either OSGi or Eclipse (although knowledge of standard Java *will* be assumed). Also, we will discuss some aspects of OSGi that are not commonly used in Eclipse plug-in development, for example, usage of the Service Registry. So even experienced plug-in developers should get something from it.
The Eclipse Equinox project produces the core runtime used by Eclipse and the reference implementation for both the OSGi 4.1 framework and JSR 291 specifications. This webinar introduces attendees to OSGi and how developers can use Equinox to create component based applications. We highlight several new Equinox features in the Europa release, specifically improvements to the application model, server-side support and launching the runtime.
