The osgi in action says that the book writing started in oct 2008 and published in march 2011. Is this a normal time taken to write the book or were there changes in osgi framework that made the authors to rewrite /edit the contents resulting the delay?

I don't know if it is normal, but it is the first book we've ever written and it was a lot more effort than what we thought it would be, that's for sure.

From my experience 1,5 years is quite uncommonly long.

;-) Find me an author who was not making this experience. (I know what you are talking about...)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
