Abstract

The Declarative Services (or "DS") specification is one of the newest parts of OSGi, it uses a XML file to encapsulate all service registration code. This proposed application is about to develop an OSGi Declarative Service Tooling to improve development productivity. An UI based tool will let you focus on the application logic of your code.

My vision is to encourage new developers to use OSGi technology (specifically Declarative Service). As a new functionality, an Editor will help to create and maintain all component registration code easier. This feature is very important for component reuse developers, who will concentrate on their services, instead of OSGi Framework code. Moreover, implementation of such add-in will increase the OSGi popularity due to a simplification on OSGi component development.
