OSGi, TPTP and Eclipse Live

Filed under: Eclipse, Java — Tags: , , , , — Antony Stubbs @ 9:57 am

I’m currently on a product prototype development team run out of India and as a part of that team I have been thrown into the depths of OSGi. Not having incoutnered it before, I didn’t really immediately comprehend what it was.

However, thanks to the wonders of RSS feeds, I stumbled upon this presentation about Eclipse Equanox, OSGi and how Eclipse uses OSGi as it’s foundation for it’s modular design. The Live page for the presentation is here – Introduction to Eclipse Equinox and OSGi.

It’s all a part of this wonderful site called Eclipse Live, which has several such presentations, including Profiling and Testing Applications Using the [infamous ] Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP), which I’ve never really managed to use before. But it’s great to now know I can profile applications in Eclipse! Now I just need to figure out how to profile my application running in jetty which gets launched by an Eclipse “external application”. Using an embedded style of Jetty would probably work, but I don’t want to have to go through the drama of changing our setup (plus, it’s not that important for that project).
