OSGi (Services) in Action

Just noticed that my chapter on OSGi services has reached the Manning Early Access Program. Hope you enjoy reading it, and remember to post any comments or questions on our author forum.

Here's some of the topics covered in Studying Services:
  • The what, why and when of services

  • OSGi services in action!

  • Dealing with dynamics

  • Using services in the paint example

  • How services relate to modularity and lifecycle

  • Framework services

Do you remember to unget OSGi services?

Just posted the first set of code examples for OSGi in Action, chapters 1 to 4:

The answer to when you should "unget" an OSGi service (and why you should bother) will be explained in chapter 4 of the book, which will hopefully reach Manning's Early Access Program very soon.

Spoiler alert: take a peek at chapter04/dynamics.
