Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Introduction to OSGi powered by Apache Karaf
Date Sun, 13 Sep 2015 19:44:46 GMT
I think the main arguments for karaf are the console, the maven 
integration and the support for a wide range of Apache and other 
projects out of the box like
ActiveMQ, CXF, Camel, Aries, Hibernate, Eclipselink, OpenJPA, pax exam, 
pax cdi, pax jdbc. Of course you can not look into these in detail in an 
hour but you can
show how easy it is to install some of these especially with the 
repo-add aliases.

Something that might work well is to prepare a very small application 
that shows how to combine some of the above projects. For all OSGi 
projects outside karaf integrating all these project is a really big 

For example I showed a little karaf application with a web UI, rest 
service (CXF) and twitter integration (Camel) some time ago:
