Looking at the table of contents, the book will not provide an overview of the standard OSGI services and how these are related and should be used.

It this true? Or will there be a section on that?

Cheers

Re: Standard OSGI services...
Hi Erik,

The core framework services and a selection of compendium services
are discussed in chapter 4, but it is not an in-depth "how to use XYZ"
walk-through because the chapter would become very rambling.

We will cover the more interesting services that people are most likely
to use later on in the book (for example the HttpService) but we don't
plan on providing an exhaustive coverage of every single OSGi service
because there are several that hardly anyone will use.

Are there particular services you want to see discussed in detail?

Re: Standard OSGI services...
Hi Stuart,


The services that spring to mind most are:
* http service specification
* configuration admin service
* declarative services
* monitor admin service
* event admin service

Also, some short summary of the work done in Enterprise OSGI group would be nice, as well as some pointers to often used frameworks and tools (e.g. iPOJO).

Cheers
Erik

Re: Standard OSGI services...
Hi Erik,

The latest MEAP update now covers:

HttpService (ch13)
ConfigurationAdmin (ch7)
DeclarativeServices (ch10)

We don't yet cover EventAdmin or MonitorAdmin, but some of the enterprise work is discussed in ch10 and ch13. iPOJO is discussed in ch10 and compared with other component models. Some test and debugging tools are covered in ch8 and ch9, and build/bundling tools in ch6 (we're also planning a short appendix about build tools).
