An Introduction to EclipseRT, Equinox and OSGi

This talk will introduce people to OSGi and Equinox using the Toast example from EclipseRT. EclipseRT is the collection of OSGi-based runtimes and frameworks built by the Eclipse open source projects. It enables the implementation of component oriented development architectures. Toast is an example application meant to demonstrate a wide range of EclipseRT and OSGi technologies. It operates in the telematics and fleet management domain. A typical telematics system interfaces to the devices in the vehicle and provides a user interface for interacting with or managing the devices. Toast is an example of using Equinox and OSGi Services, Declarative Services, extension points, applications, HTTP service and so on. Attendees will learn about how to work with and potentially extend Toast to learn more about EclipseRT technologies.
