OSGi, SOA infrastructure
OSGi is poised to provide a service platform extensive enough to provide ubiquitous modularity – but effectively creating OSGi bundles is still difficult. The Nimble Distribution seeks to address this and related issues. Paremus, an OSGi based private cloud computing provider, and Makewave, the company behind the difficult-to-pronounce Knopflerfish OSGi Service Platform, have teamed up to create and support the new software distribution. The companies suggest their service platform can boost adoption of OSGi in a way similar to Linux as commercially supported “Linux stacks” were introduced. The initial release of the Nimble Distribution includes Paremus OSGi Shell (Posh) – a Unix-like interactive shell and scripting environment, as well as Nimble Resolver – the engine of the Nimble Distribution.
