Rob Harrop is the lead engineer on SpringSource dm Server, and is a key contributor at SpringSource. He co-authored Pro Spring, a seminal work in helping developer understand how to best use the Spring Framework.
In this podcast, I talk to Rob about OSGi and the Spring dm Server. We discuss the state of OSGi development, how it differs from traditional web-based Spring application development, and recent advancements in the technology.
- The official OSGi R4 specification can be found here.
- Information about the SpringSource dm Server can be found on the SpringSource Team Blog, and on the official site.
- The RFC66 specification (standard OSGi web container) is not yet published, but Rob has a good post from May outlining how dm Server approaches implementing a draft version.
- Lots of information about Spring dm Server can be found on the developer forums.
