OSGi Enterprise and ECF Remote Services

Earlier today the OSGi 4.2 Enterprise spec was announced by David Bosschaert.

As part this announcement David listed some implementations of the OSGi 4.2 Remote Services specification, but for some strange reason he neglected to include the EclipseRT implementation from from ECF project.

So, just to be clear, EclipseRT/ECF 3.2 also already has support for OSGi 4.2 Remote Services. See here for details, links to docs, examples, and public support forums...as well as descriptions of other features in this implementation.

OSGi/EclipseRT in Amazon Cloud - p2

In a previous post, I announced the availability of a public Amazon Image (AMI) for the Amazon EC2 service that includes several EclipseRT 3.6 technologies...including Jetty 7.0.1 and Equinox 3.6M5.

p2 is also included in the image, and this allows install/update in a running OSGi web application server. Also included in the AMI is Jetty + Equinox 3.6M5 that does not include p2.

OSGi/EclipseRT in Amazon Cloud

I've created a public Amazon Image (AMI) from a recent build (3.6 stream) of the EclipseRT. The parts of EclipseRT included in this image were Jetty, Equinox, p2 provisioning, and a very simple Hello World servlet application (with source).

Here is documentation about how to get the image, start an EC2 instance, and run your own server.

Here is an instance of this Hello World servlet application running on my instance.
