enRoute is based upon the latest OSGi Alliance Specifications, see:
Each OSGi Alliance Specification is accompanied by a Reference Implementation and an associated Conformance Test suite. These resources maintained by the OSGi Alliance Members: OSGi Specification Implementations lists implementations of released Specifications.
The following resources provide further information and guidance on developing with OSGi.
- The bndtools IDE plugin for Eclipse - The easy, powerful and productive way to develop with OSGi. Based on bnd and Eclipse.
- Maven plugins provided by the Bnd project - The Maven plugins used by enRoute.
- The bnd Community Site - The engine behind popular software development tools that support OSGi.
OSGi Developer Certification
The OSGi Alliance Developer Certification Program validates the OSGi skills and knowledge of IT professionals; so providing an independent referenceable verification.
The current certification program is intended for experienced hands-on OSGi Developers. However, the OSGi Alliance are considering an online enRoute Certification, this as a first step towards full Certification.
It is increasingly realized that OSGi Specifications provide the modular foundations upon which economically sustainable software solutions can be built. The following OSGi testimonials demonstrate some of the variety of industries and real world uses that depend upon OSGi.
If you are already using OSGi then please share your testimonial with us (Submission guidelines).
