OSGi Remote Services

What's New

There was a talk about the use of Remote Services from Neil Bartlett at EclipseCon 2014. It was called Scaling and Orchestrating Microservices with OSGi. About midway through the talk he discusses the use of Remote Services. Sadly, he doesn't use ECF's open implementation of RSA, but he does make some interesting points about the utility of using Remote Services for scaling microservices across processes.

Coding Conventions

ECF has decided to use the Equinox Coding Conventions. Also on this page are links to java source code formatter to use in Eclipse to easily enforce these conventions.


ECF has nightly and continuous builds with automated integration testing. We use Jenkins and Buckminster and is hosted at the Oregon State University Open Source Lab. See here.

Both Maven and p2 repositories are available from nightly builds here.
