Description

Enhanced Felix logging bundle

RobWalker

Bringing together the best of tools like LOG4J, integrated as OSGi "enhanced log service" bundles and with compatibility for current org.osgi.service.log API. Our company's OSGi based project did some really really crude work in this area to meet our immediate needs which in no way would come up to scratch as a standard/generic implementation - but it showed to us that the scope and benefits are there.

OSGi remoting

RobWalker

Simple remoting and cross VM bridging of OSGi services using a lighweight, firewall friendly protocol e.g. Hessian/Burlap. There is already a possible submitter to Felix of an RMI based approach, so that may offer a starting codebase for this.

Felix / WebStart

RobWalker

Standardised Felx / WebStart layer, giving a very lightweight bootstrapping of Felix from a WebStart / JNLP launcher, with richer bundle sets and services then being managed through OSGi and OBR mechanisms.
