EIG:Distributed EventAdmin Service

Revision as of 16:31, 11 June 2009 by Slewis.eclipsesource.com (Talk | contribs) (Introduction)


OSGi declares an EventAdmin service that is responsible for distributing events to listeners registered via the (org.osgi.service.event.EventHandler). It's possible to create distributed implementations of such services using JMS and/or other messaging frameworks for distributing messages to other OSGi frameworks.


ECF's provider architecture allows the creation of a distributed EventAdmin implementation that can use a variety of wire protocols. For example, ActiveMQ/JMS 5.2 as above, or ECF generic, XMPP, JavaGroups, commercial/proprietary messaging buses, or any others that can implement the ECF Shared Object API.
