10:20 - 12:50, Experience level: Basic

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create modular, robust, and durable enterprise applications fit for the cloud age. Modularity forces separation of concerns, which enables you to replace parts of a system without breaking others. Using OSGi and a wealth of open source enterprise components, the presentation shows you how to combine those apparently opposite worlds into coherent applications. It also shows you everything you need to know about setting up your development environment to get started right away. The session features lots of live coding!


You will learn about modular architecture and how to practically achieve this using OSGi. Some of the topics included:

  • Creating OSGi bundles, with proper implementation hiding Dynamic OSGi Services
  • Creating real world components such as MongoDB data access and RESTful web services 
  • Semantic versioning 
  • Cloud deployment
