Now we just need a tool to migrate NetBeans Modules to OSGI.

Thanks for your comment, Max. I guess I forgot to mention how easy is that. I am adding a little howto to the page.

Utter nonsense at the end about patents, you shouldn't speculate about what you don't understand. The OSGi Alliance rules require all contributions made by its members (including IBM) to be provided with patent indemnities. Sun does have lawyers who do understand this, I assume.

Also note that OSGi has existed in its present form since 1999, so it clearly predates NetBeans Runtime Container.

I guess it is quite opposite: Only because I started to speculate, I could hear your opinion. Thanks.

On the other hand, this is what I see when downloading the spec "certain elements of the OSGi Alliance Specification may be subject to third party intellectual property rights, including without limitation, patent rights" - can you tell me where exactly is your indemnification?

Arguing about who's more older is always a bit silly. Sorry for starting this, it is only essential for the prior art claim. But how did you come up with year 1999? The OSGi history page says: "OSGi Service Gateway Release 1 was released in May 2000". Moreover that is only a specification, not implementation used in production.

Btw. OSGi spec. v1 reminds me of Java 1.0.2 - so slim and clean. --JaroslavTulach 18:48, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

For smoth migration, netbeans update center need to acces OSGI Bundle Repository (OBR)

We try to mix OSGI/bnm module inot an application. To do start we start at this point:

  • nbm plugins are deploy into nbm repository
  • osgi plugins are depploy into OBR repository (nexus).

The pb is when a netbeans developer create a nbm plugin with osgi dependency:

  • all works fine a compile time but ..
  • when a consumer want to install the nbm plugin into its application, it can not download the osgi plugin ...

Is-there a way to do this into netbeans and specially into update-center ?

Thx Christophe.

Jesse Glick wrote to me: There is no such feature. The NB Plugin Manager knows nothing of OBR. It could be enhanced to, though this is not quite my area.
