Hi there!

I'm starting a project using OSGi, and it's new to me.

It's OK that OSGi is a framework. Is there any framework that "competes" with OSGi, that I can do a comparison?

And is there any framework or technology more powerfull than OSGi?

Sorry about my questions, but I need any information to move on.

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,

Liam

Welcome to CodeRanch Liam!

I don't have any experience with OSGi, but I have been using NetBeans RCP, which includes NetBeans Module System, which apparently is very similar to OSGi.

OSGi is powerful stuff by itself; I don't know that there's anything more powerful out there. But you can use it on different levels: bundles, services, embedded container, etc. I've used the Apache Felix implementation, and occasionally Apache Karaf as container on top of that.

I don't know RCP, but Java 9 is going to have a module system that replicates some of what OSGi does, and will reportedly have some degree of compatibility with it. (Of course, that was said about Java 7 and Java 8 before, so we'll have to wait and see what actually materializes.)
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
