I wanted to blog about the OSGi Enterprise Expert Group but Eric Newcomer (IONA), one from the chairs beat me. I do not think I can improve his report, so please check it out. I fully agree with Eric that it was an exciting and energetic day with a lot of hope for the future (and work). If you want to participate in this work, you will have to become an OSGi member, but believe me, it is definitely going to be worth it!

I just finished working on the final details OSGi DevCon/EclipseCon . It really is becoming an amazing conference. We had many more submissions than we could select, and almost all submissions were of very high quality. You still get an early bird discount for the next two weeks, so sign up quickly. I sure hope to meet many of my blog readers.

Ok, one thing technical. Jon Bostrom showed me the N800, which is an improved version of the N770. This is an OSGi dream come true machine. For some reason, it does not include a GSM chip, but that could make the N800 an interesting companion with the E70 that I have, which contains also an OSGi framework. The devices could communicate over wifi or bluetooth to exchange data and code. Jon promised me an N800 once the channels are filled, once I get one I will report about my experiences. So many interesting areas, so little time ...

  1. Wow...N800
    I am new to OSGi framework for my graduational work at uni, and I find OSGi really attractive. When I had in hand my first OSGi documentation
    a million ideas came to my head about deployment of certain applications at my house (for practice purposes).
    I think I could integrate a device like N800 at my dream house :P:P:P ;) ;)
    I try hard to find time but i think it is an investment.
