A Hands-On Guide to Equinox and the OSGi Framework
In OSGI and Equinox: Creating Highly Modular Java™ Systems , three leading experts show developers—for the first time—exactly how to make the most of these breakthrough technologies for building highly modular dynamic systems.
You’ll quickly get started with Eclipse bundle tooling, create your first OSGi-based system, and move rapidly to sophisticated production development. Next, you’ll master best practices and techniques for creating systems with exceptional modularity and maintainability. You’ll learn all about OSGi’s Declarative Services and how to use them to solve a wide variety of real-world problems. Finally, you’ll see everything that you’ve learned implemented in a complete case study project that takes you from early prototype through application delivery.

This book is not that old, but it is largely a tutorial and some of the source code necessary to complete the tutorial is not presented in full in the text and it is also no longer available in any useful form on line.
